Or two. Or three. Its hard to keep count. And guess what? Come Nov. 11 well celebrate The Day Formerly-Known-AsArmistice-Day Nov. 11, 1918. Remember that day, the one that marked the conclusion of The war to end all wars? Now we call it Veterans Day. Before I explain why, I suggest you take immediate action. Instead of waving a flag or saying, Thank you for your service, dig $100 out of your pocket and buy yourself or somebody else a ticket to Wine on the Waterfront. A benefit for the highly rated nonprofit, Operation Open Arms, the wine will flow from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Matanzas on the Bay, a restaurant on Fort Myers Beach, Saturday, Nov. 11 (Veterans Day). For the money youll have to eat seafood, drink wines from around the word, and hear the lively singer Sheena Brook, a contestant on the NBC show The Voice. Better yet, every penny of your money will help buy a wedding, a vacation, or (we hope not) a funeral for an active-duty soldier, sailor, airman or Marine currently serving in a combat or overseas billet, and his or her family. The restaurant (with an inn if you want to spend the night on the Gulf) is 2 hours from Palm Beach, less than an hour from Naples, Fort Myers or Punta Gorda, and 7,723 miles from Afghanistan (in case you thought Palm Beach was too far). The founder of Operation Open Arms, Capt. John Giddyup Bunch, has spent 13 years working his tail off to embrace people he understands: combat veterans on active duty. Capt. Bunch is a fishing guide and Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam who defies the typical nonprofit need to pay his staff. Nobody in his outfit, including Capt. Bunch, ever takes so much as a single penny. Some 350 merchants and business owners people such as Doug SpiemSmith, who owns Matanzas on the Bay back him up with contributions. Helping these young men and women who go places and do things in our name none of us would ever want for ourselves or our children is probably a pretty good bet for good works, as defined by God, man and, say, the Knights of the Round Table. At its roots, meanwhile, Veterans Day is soaked in blood. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, it became Armistice Day. At that moment the Germans, the Austrians, the Turks and the Bulgarians stopped shooting at the North Americans, the Australians, the British, the French, the Russians and the Italians. Who returned the favor. They had all agreed to end hostilities in World War I. The word suggests little more than an amped up schoolyard argument, doesnt it? But in reality, its chilling. Hostilities hardly does justice to the cataclysmic ocean of blood that soaked into the European continent and elsewhere between 1914 and 1918. The British lost more than 700,000 young people from its sceptered isle, as Shakespeare called it. The French lost 1.4 million. The Germans lost roughly 2 million, although World War I killed close to 3 million Germans, including military and civilian casualties. As for the Turks of the Ottoman Empire, German allies that many now forget? They lost about 25 percent of the population. That included as many as 772,000 battle deaths and about 5 million total dead. The Americans and Canadians were stung but not decimated except for every one of the families of every one of the dead. The Americans lost 116,000 men in just over a year; the Canadians about 53,000. But none of those stark numbers remembers the torn families whose sons or daughters vanished suddenly from the forward progress of the planet, leaving behind the roads untraveled: the loves and marriages never consummated that might have been; the children and grandchildren never born who should have been; the inventive work for the good never completed by the dead or their unborn progeny, that could have been. All of those lost souls were or they ought to have been our countrymen and women, or our fellow humans. Instead, they were people who either ceased breathing too early, or never breathed at all, but might have in the century following Armistice Day. As it turned out, though, President Dwight Eisenhower felt compelled to rename Armistice Day a mere 36 years later, in 1954. A little thing called World War II had superseded the war to end all wars significantly more devastating than World War I so the change was an easy sell to Congress and the American people. And now we have the current wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Terror and a few others, it seems), following the past wars (Korea, Vietnam and a few others), with the threat of other wars looming. So what can we do? We can resist every other war ever to be conceived by callous old people and fought by fiery young ones. And we can embrace each of those who suffer wars on our behalf, the combat veterans with Operation Open Arms. t f N 7 t C roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Wine on the Waterfront, Veterans Day>> When: 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 11 >> Where: Matanzas on the Bay restaurant, 416 Crescent St., Fort Myers Beach >> Phone: 463-3838. >> Email: email@example.com >> Event bene ciary: Operation Open Arms, OperationOpenArms.org; 822-8888; 3624 Bayview Ave., St. James City, FL 33956

We are supposed to believe that it bought the American presidential election last year with $100,000 in Facebook ads and some other digital activity. Frankly, if American democracy can be purchased this cheap a tiny fraction of the $7.2 million William Seward paid to buy Alaska from the Russians back in 1867 its probably not worth having. The latest obsession in the Russian collusion story, the Kremlins digital activity has generated headlines and put Facebook and all of Silicon Valley on the defensive, although this looks to be one of the most overhyped stories of the year. The Russians, as far as we know, bought more than $100,000 in Facebook ads between June 2015 and May 2017. A little more than half was spent after last November, when, obviously, Donald Trump had already won. The scale here is singularly unimpressive. A serious House campaign might spend $100,000 on digital. In a presidential campaign, the amount is a rounding error. The Trump campaign spent around $90 million on digital in 2016. Hillary Clinton employed a considerable digital staff, and announced she was spending $30 million on digital the last month of the campaign alone. If tens of thousands of dollars was decisive amid this tsunami of tens of millions, the Russian trolls working somewhere in St. Petersburg should strike out on their own and start a political consultancy or an internet publishing company. They are geniuses. It doesnt appear that much of the Russian material was explicitly advocating for Trumps election, and some of it wasnt even right wing. One Russian Facebook page highlighted discrimination against Muslims. Another promoted anti-police videos for a Black Lives Matter audience. A pro-gay-rights page was called LGBT United. Other pages were on the right and supportive of Trump. But much of the Russian Facebook activity was peddling online tripe indistinguishable from indigenous American online tripe in fact, it was ripped off from content produced by Americans. If the Russians are going to decide our elections on social media, one assumes it will require at least a little originality. One suspicion has been that the Trump campaign helped direct the Russian online effort. What we know about the Russian activity so far makes that doubtful. Why, if the Trump campaign was running its own digital campaign that was magnitudes larger, would it bother with a tiny Russian effort that wasnt always focused on Trump or his message? It is outrageous that Russians meddled in our democracy at all, and if there are ways to lock them out of our social media going forward, we should do it. Lets not pretend, though, that the Russian online activity was the key to the election. This is classic conspiracy thinking that some small secret cabal is responsible for a worldhistorical outcome that had much more obvious causes (Hillary Clintons poor campaign, for one). There may yet be truly damaging Russia revelations, and the Trump familys business dealings could always produce a nasty surprise. But all the focus on Facebook serves, for now, as a substitute for a smoking gun in the absence of a real one. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. m p r s 2 s s rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly COMMENTARYIts time for the state legislature to ban fracking BY NICOLE JOHNSONDirector of Environmental Policy Conservancy of Southwest FloridaAs the 2018 state legislative session approaches, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and our more than 6,000 supporting families are asking our elected officials to prioritize and pass bills that protect our most valued resource: our water. These efforts are reflected in our top legislative priority, a statewide ban on well stimulation treatments (commonly known as fracking), which has been proposed through Senate Bill 462 and House Bill 237. We applaud the leadership of Sen. Dana Young (R-Tampa) and Rep. Kathleen Peters (R-Treasure Island) in filing these critical bills. These risky drilling practices use hazardous chemicals and can result in surface spills and water contamination. The science on well stimulation treatments reinforces these concerns, demonstrating that well stimulation treatments pose risks from surface spills, from transport and disposal of the resulting toxic wastewater and also from the treatments themselves. Studies have also emphasized the impact of water use on local communities. Not only can fracking threaten the integrity of our water quality, but it can waste substantial amounts of our precious freshwater supplies. Well stimulation treatments use high volumes of freshwater mixed with toxic chemicals. Any water that returns to the surface after the treatments includes trace radioactive elements and briny saltwater from underground. This water cannot be reused to replenish groundwater resources, which is the source of drinking water for more than 90 percent of Floridians. South Floridas oil is of poor quality, and Floridas reserves represent a mere one-tenth of 1 percent of the oil in the United States. The proposed legislation would still allow these reserves to be extracted by conventional methods, providing continued access by mineral rights holders. Floridas tourism and real estate economies rely on our natural resources and have a direct impact on the quality of life for both residents and visitors. We cannot afford to jeopardize the quality and availability of our water resources for a one-time industrial use that benefits so few. Controversy surrounding fracking and fracking-like activities came to the forefront of public concern when an unauthorized fracking operation took place at Collier-Hogan well near Audubon Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Thankfully, in the 2017 legislative session for the first time members on both sides of the aisle within our state legislature recognized that the use of well stimulation treatments is not worth the risk to our drinking water supply, water resources and Floridas environment-based economy. We are grateful to the nearly 50 elected officials representing about half of the Senate and about a quarter of the House who co-sponsored last years bills to ban risky well stimulation treatments. We hope to have even more support for the ban bills in 2018. There has been a groundswell of support across the state at the local level, with more than 90 municipalities enacting either local ordinances or resolutions to support a ban on fracking. Given the overwhelming public support across the state in conjunction with the plethora of scientific information regarding the unacceptable risks to water resources, it is time for the state of Florida to ban fracking. Nicole Johnson is director of environmental policy at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. To learn more about this issue, the Conservancy invites the public to attend a free information session led by Cornell Universitys Anthony Ingraffea, Ph.D., a leading researcher on unconventional oil and gas extraction, on Wednesday evening, Nov. 8.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY And yet their strange charm to some is undeniable. I want him! Abigail Murphy, 2, told her dad, TJ, pointing at a big Muscovy duck who sat on the shore surrounded by more slender and graceful white ibis. Iridescent green feathers shimmered in the sunlight on the ducks back, one of many Muscovy color patterns. Abigail and TJ, who is 27, often visit the ducks and other wildlife that live in a wide canal behind Bayfront Health hospital in Port Charlotte off Olean Boulevard. Shes absolutely in love with the ducks, TJ says. I mean, this is the type of stuff shell remember. Nearby, young Muscovy ducks drifted, three dark and one lighter colored. Found mostly in urban areas in Florida in canals, retention ponds in condo complexes or behind Walmarts, in gated communities, on golf courses and farms, they are both abundantly common and little-known, neighbors we havent cared to get to know. Native to Central and South America and parts of southern Texas, they are considered a non-native, invasive species by the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission, although by some accounts theyve lived here for hundreds of years. At the least, theyve been here since the 1960s. FWC has no population projection but there are thought to be tens of thousands in Florida. These birds have escaped captivity or were released illegally for ornamental purposes, FWCs website reads. Because they are an introduced species, landowners can remove them without a permit, but they cant relocate them on public land. That means theyre usually euthanized unless a private landowner or the rare shelter is willing to take them. Although the ducks are protected under animal cruelty rules, their status as an invasive nuisance makes them vulnerable to mistreatment, said Don Anthony, a spokesperson for the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida in Fort Lauderdale. Its an ongoing problem, he said. There are people who hate these ducks and are just unbelievably brutal and cruel to them they not just chase them but kill them. Some people purposely run them over when they see them in the street. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported in 2015 that a trapper was found bludgeoning mother Muscovies to death at a condo building in Pembroke Pines. And in Wellington, a groundskeeper allegedly laughed as he gunned his lawn mower over a flock of 11 ducklings The landscaper was charged with nine counts of animal cruelty. Although the ducks pose virtually no threat to human health, according to the Florida Department of Health, it has been suggested that they could spread diseases such as avian flu or duck viral enteritis to other birds. Those cases have rarely been reported. FWC didnt respond to a question asking what specific disease the Muscovy ducks could spread to other wildlife and how that compares to diseases other animals can spread. The most common complaint about them is that they can breed like crazy in heavily populated areas especially when people feed them and then poop on peoples driveways, sidewalks and other areas. The FWC recorded 71 complaints about Muscovy ducks in Palm Beach County between January 2014 and September 2017, the most of any Florida county, followed by Hillsborough County with 43. During that period, there were 20 complaints in Lee, 10 in Collier, and none in Charlotte County. FWC says the ducks have often divided residents who love them and those who hate their droppings, property damage and aggressive behavior. One of the few researchers to begin studying Florida populations of Muscovy ducks, Jacqueline Perry Cahanin graduated in May from the University of South Florida in Tampa with an M.S. in Environmental Science. They are kind of lazy, she admits, though she grew fond of them. I do like the ducks. She implores people not to feed them, or any wildlife. They have plenty of food, she said. Her graduate thesis, Abundance and Habitat Preferences of Introduced Muscovy Ducks (Cairina moschata) aims to assist land managers and property owners with habitat modifications in preventing or controlling nuisance Muscovy populations. Ms. Cahanins professor and mentor, Joni Firat, specializes in the study of animal movement. Lately that has included Muscovy ducks. I quickly learned that they are not well studied outside their native range, wrote Dr. Firat, associate chair at USFs School of Geosciences. So, my students and I have been studying Muscovy ducks to learn more about what habitats they use in Florida, as well as how they use them. She and her students observed individual ducks in the Tampa area to find out how they spend their time. We found that they spend most of the daytime in grass (41 percent), followed by ponds and their shorelines (25 percent), under tree and shrub cover (27 percent), and other urban habitats (7 percent), she wrote. They also spend the night roosting at the edge of the water or in trees. They feed in a variety of ways: gleaning foods from the ground surface, such as acorns, or insects; dabbling in the water; probing the soil for insects or other foods; grazing grasses and other small plants; and consuming bread and other food items offered by humans. Dr. Firat (along with the FWC and many others) says people should not feed the ducks, as she has noticed people doing on campus. It can cause their population to explode in a populated area, leading to ducks being trapped and euthanized. Although I do not recommend feeding wildlife, she added, frozen peas are a better option than bread in terms of both duck health and maintaining water quality. Duck HavenEunice Sivertsen, at 80, is Floridas and perhaps the worlds most dedicated Muscovy duck activist, spokesperson and caretaker. For 41 years, she has run the nonprofit Duck Haven, a shelter for Muscovy ducks at her home in Margate in Broward County. I think that the ducks keep me young, she said. Ms. Sivertsen, who moved to Florida from Long Island, is now caring for about 70 permanently injured and disabled ducks and finds homes for the healthy ones. I have blind ones, she said. One with half a beak. One with one leg She has taken in the ducks from all over South Florida including from residents in Palm Beach County and the CROW clinic on Sanibel Island. CROW admitted 58 injured Muscovy ducks this year, and 43 last year. The most common injury is being hit by a car.

They are generally larger and heavier than their wild counterparts native to Central and South America, Mexico and southern Texas, and their color patterns come in more varieties. >> Key features: Their red heads, which especially in males as they become adult, develop into warty esh called caruncles around their eyes and beaks. Females sometimes lack this feature entirely, and are also typically much smaller than males. They also hiss instead of quack. >> Length: 28 to 34 inches. >> Weight: 5 to 15 pounds. >> Lifespan: Up to 12 years. >> Habitat: All 67 Florida counties. Unlike wild Muscovy ducks, which live mainly in forests, Floridas variety are usually found in urban and suburban areas such as condo complex ponds, golf courses, city parks and canals, as well as on farms. >> Number in Florida: Unknown. There are said to be tens of thousands. >> Diet: Vegetation, insects, small sh and crustaceans, spiders, worms, handouts from people such as bread. >> Predators: Feral cats, dogs, alligators, raccoons. Water snakes and lizards may eat their eggs. Owls, rats and other predators may feed on chicks. >> Breeding: Proli c. They lay from eight to 16 eggs and breed year-round. The eggs take about a month to incubate. >> Background: The birds are believed to have been brought to Florida at an unknown date, decades or perhaps even centuries ago, escaped, and then formed their own self-sustaining populations. The name Muscovy might be a reference to the Muscovy Company based in London in 1555, which brought the ducks from the Americas to England and France, though its unclear exactly where their name comes from. >> Legal status: Muscovy ducks are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a Control Order allowing control of the Muscovy ducks and their nests and eggs in areas outside their natural range, including Florida. That allows control of the ducks by landowners, wildlife management agencies, and tenants, agents, or employees without federal or state permits. Florida and federal rules prohibit the release of Muscovy ducks on public lands.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 NEWS A9of young, healthy Muscovy ducks brought to the clinic, we are sometimes able to find permanent homes for them. Otherwise, theyre euthanized. Ms. Sivertsen and her veterinarian can restore some injured ducks back to health. She urges people who want ducks removed to call her first before calling a trapper. She has a network of private farms including in West Palm Beach where she is often able to relocate healthy Muscovy ducks. Ms. Sivertsen started Duck Haven after watching a man drowning baby ducks and beating their mother, she said, in a lake near her home. Back in Long Island, she and her late husband had raised foster children, she recalled, and when they came to Florida, the ducks felt to her a little bit like that. I guess when I moved down here I took a liking to these ducks and I could see how when I would go out to rescue one, people said, theyre garbage ducks, theyre nuisance ducks, she said. That made it even more of a challenge for me to protect these ducks that so many people disliked. Over the years, the Muscovy population, like other animals, increasingly compete for space with people. Theyve often found themselves the targets of homeowners and condo associations, and other places that typically hire trappers to remove them. It is illegal to relocate them to public land, and finding private landowners to take in unwanted Muscovy families can be difficult. Instead, FWC allows humane euthanizing of the ducks, by trappers or by residents who find the ducks on their property. Thats what usually happens. Patrick Gibson, owner of Professional Wildlife Removal, said he prefers that the ducks are taken to a private farm. Otherwise theyre euthanized, with his preferred method being carbon dioxide poisoning in a cage. Its the least torturous method, he said. The duck goes in there basically, falls asleep and thats it. Noel Hanson, owner of Animal Rangers based in Wellington, does duck removals throughout South Florida. Over here theyre extremely abundant, he said. The biggest problem with them overall is theyre very prolific, especially if people are feeding them. The other problem with them is they defecate extensively much more, so it seems, than other water fowl. Theyre more like chickens and roosters and thats the way I view them. I view Muscovy ducks like as a farm animal, not a wild animal. He would not discuss his method of euthanizing because he said it upsets people. The Sun-Sentinel reported in 2015 that the wildlife commissions accepted methods of euthanization include carbon dioxide poising and pellet guns, as well as cervical dislocation, breaking the ducks neck, whether by hand or with a club. Sometimes they are sold to gator farms for food, Ms. Sivertsen said. One of the biggest misconceptions about Muscovy ducks is that they spread disease to humans. The Florida Department of Health in Lee County emailed this statement: No public health agency, including the United States Centers for Disease Control, has any evidence that Muscovy ducks or their droppings present any health threat to human beings. The sole exception is when small children, the elderly and those with immune system problems directly handle newly hatched chicks, then exposure to salmonella can occur. Instead of calling trappers who usually euthanize the ducks, Ms. Sivertsen and others recommend controlling populations first by not feeding them. If they are fed, she adds, especially in a residential area, it should be restricted to one location. People can also remove eggs from their nest and destroy the eggs. There are different methods. Mr. Anthony of the Animal Rights Foundation recommends you wait until the nest is full before taking the eggs or else the mother will lay more to replace the missing ones. USF graduate Ms. Cahanin said you should addle the eggs to destroy the embryo and then replace them in the nest. Having the ducks around is also a way to control other unwanted insects. Its very healthy to have a certain number of Muscovy ducks in your neighborhood because they eat roaches, palmetto bugs, mosquitos, all kinds of creatures we really dont want, Mr. Anthony said. And if you dont feed them Ive seen them walk through my front yard. They forage for food and they move on. The ducks once brought joy to Naples resident Mary Jane Briggs and her grandchildren in her Tall Pines neighborhood but also a lot of poop in her driveway, she said, bless their little hearts. It all started when my grandchildren were still young and would come to me after school and of course the mamas would be around the neighborhood with the baby ducks and they wanted to feed them and that started the process, and once you start feeding ducks, thats an ongoing thing. Before long, she counted 32 ducks feeding in her driveway every day. I loved watching them, she said. I loved watching the babies grow up and a lot of the ducks almost became like pets, but then I didnt like dealing with all the aftermath of having all the ducks on my driveway. That was nearly seven years ago. Since then they stopped being fed and their numbers dwindled or they went elsewhere. I think Mother Nature and the otters that live in the two lakes we have in Tall Pines have taken care of them and the population is quite thin right now, she said. Many communities have ordinances prohibiting feeding the ducks. In Lee County, Animal Services has the authority to declare Muscovy ducks to be a public nuisance and may break the eggs and humanely euthanize the ducks if they are found to be so. It also reads, The possession of or feeding of Muscovy ducks on public property and private property zoned residential is hereby prohibited. Davie resident Steve Rosen, 66, is an animal rights activist and entrepreneur who insists that the ducks legal status should be changed to native so they can be relocated to public lands instead of being euthanized. Theyve been here longer than many people who consider themselves native, he points out, and blames their sometimes nuisance status on people feeding them. Mr. Anthony agrees. See, we create the problem and then we kill the ducks as if its their fault, he said.Yum yum duck While Muscovy ducks are known in the culinary world as being quite delicious, Chef Bruce Mattel advises that Floridas free-roaming, feral population are likely not, because of their diet. That could include bugs and flora tainted by polluted water and human handouts or even garbage. The one thing I dont think you want to do is indicate to your readers that those ducks will taste good, because they probably wont, said Chef Mattel, who is senior associate dean for culinary arts at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. The smaller Pekin duck is the most popular duck in the professional culinary world, he said, though farm-raised Muscovy ducks can be substituted for most recipes. Muscovy ducks are also commonly crossbred with Pekins to produce a Mulard duck, used for foie gras. Farm-raised Muscovy duck is very delicious, he said. Compared to Pekin, Theyre a little richer, a little more minerally. The ducks can be roasted slowly for a very long time, he said. Or, often, the more tender breasts are cooked separately while the tougher legs are braised or prepared with a confit method. The breasts have to be served medium rare to rare and sliced thin for optimum palatability, he said. Bon Apptit.

Korean War-era vets to receive a Marco Island Welcome Home!Welcome Home! to Korean Warera veterans is the theme of the 2017 Veterans Day ceremony starting at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, at Veterans Community Park on Marco Island. The event is sponsored by American Legion Post 404 and the city of Marco Island. The program will include a reading of the names of Marco veterans who have passed away over the last year. Speakers will include U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney III (R-Naples), Collier County Commissioner Donna Fiala and retired U.S. Army Col. Charlotte Roman. American Legion Post 404 Chaplain Bill Duncan, a Vietnam War veteran, will present a review of the history of the Korean War. Lee Rubenstein and Bill Horton will lead a POW-MIA ceremony. Representatives of Marco Islands American Legion Post 404, VFW Post 6370, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 95 and Marco Islands Civil Air Patrol squadron will comprise a color guard bearing the flags of the four military groups. Members of the citys police and fire-rescue departments will carry the American flag.

Keith Dameron of IBERIABANK will serve as master of ceremonies. Seating will be limited, and guests are urged to bring lawn chairs. The Korean War is sometimes called the forgotten war, notes Mr. Rubenstein, past commander of Marcos American Legion and the VFW posts. No truce was ever signed and even today, the Korean peninsula is once again on the verge of North Korea trying to ignite another war. We remember and honor all veterans from all years. Its especially important now as our Korean veterans are aging. They deserve to be thanked for their service 57 years later, Marco Island-style.

But they often are not so well suited for those who wish to traverse the sandy beaches of Southwest Florida or take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico. That quandary is at the root of a new invention: Stability Gliders, invented by a Naples-based company called Stabilized Steps. The patented, lightweight gliders attach easily to the legs of most walkers to increase stability on various terrains such as sand or gravel, providing increased mobility and helping prevent falls. We have developed a more distinct and dependable medical device attachment for walkers that allows them to be stable on uneven surfaces both indoors and outdoors, said Stephanie Gomez, co-founder and CEO of Stabilized Steps. Our product will change many lives, including the lives of caregivers, by giving individuals with mobility issues the freedom to move forward. The idea for Stabilized Steps came out of a real need. In 2009, co-founder Eryk Hardwick had a client with chronic arthritis who required a walker after two hip replacements and two knee replacements. The client had a love of visiting the beach, but was no longer able to do so because his walker would often sink unevenly into the sand. Mr. Hardwick, a residential contractor by trade, invented a metal foot that attached to the bottom of each side of the walker to stabilize it and keep it from sinking in the sand. The client could even take the walker deep enough in the water to where his wife could remove the walker and he could swim. Ms. Gomez has lived and worked in Naples since middle school. After graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University, she moved out of the area for several years but came back with her family after her son was born two years ago. She started her career as a banker before transitioning more into business consulting, helping young companies develop business plans and strategies. Mr. Hardwick secured a utility Pat-COURTESY PHOTOSA set of Stability Gliders.

Three years later he partnered with Ms. Gomez, and the two developed a new and improved version of the product. A manufacturer has been engaged and a design patent is pending. Stabilized Steps plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign in mid-November to increase awareness of the gliders. They will provide gliders to contributors who need them; for contributors who dont have a need, Stabilized Steps will donate a pair of Stability Gliders to charity. Stability Gliders were featured at the Medtrade New Product Pavilion at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta on Oct. 23-25 and received a third place on the 2017 Innovative HME Retail Product Awards and a Silver for the 2017 Providers Choice Award. Pre-orders have started coming in, and the company is talking with dealers about possible partnerships. Production is expected to begin in December, with shipments starting around yearend. It hasnt been easy, Ms. Gomez said about getting to this point with the product. But competing with multimillion and even billion-dollar companies at this trade show and coming away with multiple awards it was validating. At $129.99, the Stability Gliders replace more traditional beach walkers that can cost upwards of $1,000 and have been tested to withstand more than 500 pounds with many fall and stress scenarios. The product design is rustproof for salt water or winter salt exposure and carries a lifetime warranty. For more information, call 844-691STEP or visit www.stabilizedsteps.com.

This year, www.KY3.com reports, several turkeys were dropped during the afternoon despite animal-rights activists having filed a formal complaint with the sheriffs office, saying the pilot terrorized the birds. But pharmacist and past pilot Dana Woods told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette: We treat the turkeys right. That may sound ironic, but we dont abuse those turkeys. We coddle and pet those turkeys. Were good to them. Wild turkeys can fly, but in 2016, about a dozen birds were dropped and not all survived the fall. According to The Washington Post, over the past several years, local sponsors and the chamber of commerce have distanced themselves from the Turkey Drop, now more than five decades old. The Federal Aviation Administration is checking to see if any laws or regulations were broken, but said it has not intervened in past years because the turkeys are not considered to be projectiles.Tis the seasonCould turkeys be sensing the peril of the season? Police in Bridgewater, Mass., tweeted a warning to the towns residents on Oct. 15 about aggressive wild turkeys, WBZ-TV reported. As proof, an accompanying video showed four turkeys chasing a Bridgewater police cruiser. The officers were not as amused as their Twitter followers. Aggressive turkeys are a problem in town, the department tweeted. State law doesnt allow the police or (animal control) to remove them.UpdateIn 1990, Marlene Warren, 40, answered her door in Wellington, Fla., and was shot in the face by a clown bearing balloons (one of which read Youre the greatest!) and flowers. On Sept. 26, Palm Beach County Sgt. Richard McAfee announced that Warrens widowers current wife, Sheila Keen Warren, 54, had been arrested for the murder, 27 years after the fact, and taken into custody in Abingdon, Va. Sheila Keen married Michael Warren in 2002, NBC News reported. (Warren went to prison in 1994 for odometer tampering, grand theft and racketeering in connection with his car rental agency.) Sheila had worked for him, repossessing cars, and they were reportedly having an affair when the murder took place. While Sheila had always been a suspect, new technology finally allowed prosecutors to retest DNA evidence and build a case against her.Sex therapyZookeepers believe Chinas 4-yearold giant panda Meng Meng, currently on loan to the Berlin Zoo, displays her displeasure with her surroundings, food or caretakers by walking backward. Meng Meng is in puberty, zoo director Andreas Knieriem explained to the Berliner Zeitung newspaper on Oct. 22. The reverse walk is a protest. To address the situation, zookeepers will introduce Meng Meng to Jiao Qing, a male giant panda three years older, who presumably will ease her frustration by engaging in sexual activity with her.Most considerate criminalNellys Taqueria in Hicksville, N.Y., suffered a break-in on Oct. 3, but the burglar redefined the term clean getaway. Surveillance video showed a man donning food-service gloves and starting a pot of water to boil before hammering open the cash register. He secured $100 in his pockets, leaving a dollar in the tip jar, then started cooking up a storm, owner Will Colon told Newsday. Cameras recorded as the thief cooked beans, sauteed shrimp and chicken and helped himself to a cold soda before enjoying his meal standing up. The way he handled that pan, man, the dude had some skills, Colon said. Afterward, he carefully stored the leftovers in the refrigerator, cleaned his pans and wiped down all the surfaces he had used. Then he took off through the back window, the same way he had come in.People different from us In Lissone, Italy, 40-year-old fitness instructor Laura Mesi made news when she married herself in late September. I told my relatives and friends that if I had not found my soul mate, I would marry myself by my 40th birthday, Mesi said, according to The Independent. She spent more than 10,000 euros ($11,700) for the occasion, which included a white wedding dress, a three-tiered cake, bridesmaids and 70 guests. Shes part of a selfmarrying movement dubbed sologamy that has followers all over the world. An anonymous collector from Palm Beach was the winning bidder in an Oct. 11 online auction for a half-smoked cigar that British Prime Minister Winston Churchill enjoyed during a 1947 trip to Paris. AP reports the 4-inch cigar remnant brought just over $12,000 in the auction managed by Boston-based RR Auction. The company says Churchill smoked the cigar on May 11, 1947, at Le Bourget Airport. A British airman, Cpl. William Alan Turner, kept the cigar after he and his crew flew Churchill and his wife between Paris and London. The label on the Cuban stogie includes Churchills name.

BEHIND THE WHEELFord F-150 Raptor ability with a hint of civilityIf youre a truck person, its hard not to get excited by a machine like the Ford F-150 Raptor. The beefy stance and terrain-chewing appearance makes everyone else assume your driveway is an off-road racing circuit. But the redesign for 2017 adds an unexpected element civility. The first Raptor was intended more as a halo model for the rest of the trucks. Just like Ford uses Cobra/GT350/ GT500 packages to attract sports car buyers to the Mustang line, this was poised as the ultimate eye candy with true off-roading ability. It could lure people into the showroom where they would buy a more commuter-friendly F-150. But that didnt happen. Instead, Fords truck customers (and many others) put their money down for the real thing. Most people didnt complain that the Baja 1000 level of suspension travel was too bouncy for parking lot speed bumps. These first buyers knew what this truck was about, especially in Florida, where theres genuine appeal for a vehicle built to run hard in the sand. But Ford also has been wise about re-evaluating the Raptor for the second generation model. Just as before, the new truck is out to get adrenaline pumping at first glance. Extra wide fenders, beefy 17-inch wheels w/chunky tires, skid plates and a tall stance are all pure intimidation. And the Raptors exclusive grille spells out F-O-R-D in big block letter like it wants to stamp its name into the tailgates of any pickup that dares get in front. In fact, aside from the cab and the headlight style, its hard to see much of the original F-150 in the Raptors design. Inside, the lineage is clearer. Plenty of components are borrowed from the F-150, including the dash layout and infotainment system. But the more pedestrian versions dont have features like the Terrain Management System. This not only optimizes performance for everyday traction situations like rain or ice, but also theres a setting that will enable the truck to perform Bajalike high-speed 4x4 runs. And being able to hit highway speeds where there are no roads is the Raptors specialty. The standard F-150 frame is reinforced in all the right places; the bumpers maximize approach/departure angles; and the pricey internal bypass Fox Racing shocks are standard equipment. Theres more to this Raptor hardware upgrade, but wed have to break out the off-road glossary to explain it all on this $51,080 truck. Just know that people who understand what a desert pre-runner is are already excited about this one. None of this ability is surprising, because its what made off-roaders fall in love/lust with the first-generation Raptor. The difference with the new truck is that Ford has left all of the beach storming ability, and added more usability. It starts with the motor. Gone is the 6.2-liter V8, and in its place is a 3.5-liter V6. Its a twin-turbo unit producing 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque nearly a 10 percent and 18 percent jump in respective figures. The all-out raucous rumble of the V8 is replaced by some of the turbo blow off valve whoosh, which is an added thrill for some people, but the real benefit is economy. The V6 combines with lighter body panels, better aerodynamics, and a new 10-speed automatic transmission (with multiple overdrives) to deliver a 23 percent increase in average fuel economy. Greenpeace wont praise a jump from 13 mpg to 16 mpg, but that can mean an extra day between fill-ups and a genuine cost savings for the daily drivers. And Ford seems to be aiming the new Raptor at people who are going to use it for more than just storming the beaches. A bit of bounce is unavoidable with the 13-inch suspension travel this one needs, but it never feels like a trampoline on the road even in hard start/stop maneuvers. The 4x4 system continues to have true high/low locks for real off-road work, and now theres an automatic setting for more everyday wet weather situations. The extra-wide stance fills the road more than the standard F-150, but Ford also offers an optional lane-keep assist for those who need to drive in tight urban spaces. The Raptor is always going to have appeal to Floridians who like to play in the sand on the weekends. But the new one is not going to make you regret your purchase when its time to drive to work on Monday. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Know where traffic deputies plan to beHeres where Collier County Sheriffs Office deputies will be on traffic detail the week of Nov. 6-10: Monday, Nov. 6 Goodlette-Frank and Immokalee roads: Speeding U.S. 41 East and Rattlesnake Hammock Road: Speeding Pine Ridge and Livingston roads: Red-light running Tuesday, Nov. 7 Estey Avenue at East Naples Middle School: Aggressive driving Vanderbilt Beach and Airport Pulling roads: Red-light running Golden Gate Parkway and I-75 northbound exit: Red-light running Wednesday, Nov. 8: Collier and Golden Gate boulevards: Aggressive driving Davis and Santa Barbara boulevards: Red-light running Rattlesnake Hammock and County Barn roads: Speeding Thursday, Nov. 9 U.S 41 East and Triangle Boulevard: Aggressive driving Sunshine and Green boulevards: SpeedingImmokalee and Rock roads: SpeedingFriday, Nov 10 Coronado Parkway and Hunter Boulevard: Speeding Logan Boulevard and Cherry Wood Drive: Red-light running Radio and Livingston roads: SpeedingCheck out CCSO2go appCCSO2go, the mobile application of the Collier County Sheriffs Office, is free to download.

It has limited room for growth because of the skull. This means that a growing tumor can squeeze vital parts of the brain and lead to serious health problems. Learning about the possible symptoms of brain tumors can help you know when to tell a doctor about them. A tumor is an abnormal mass of cells. When most normal cells grow old or get damaged, they die and new cells take their place. Sometimes this process goes wrong. New cells form when the body doesnt need them, and old or damaged cells dont die as they should. The extra cells can form a tumor. A tumor that starts in the brain is called a primary brain tumor. People of all ages, including children, can develop this type of tumor. And there are many different ways they can form. There are more than 130 different types of primary brain tumors, says Dr. Mark Gilbert, an NIH brain tumor expert. About 80,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with a primary brain tumor each year. Cancer that has spread to the brain from another part of the body is called a metastatic brain tumor. Metastatic brain tumors are far more common than primary tumors. Both primary and metastatic brain tumors can cause similar symptoms. Symptoms depend mainly on where the tumor is in the brain. The symptoms of brain tumors can be either dramatic or subtle, Dr. Gilbert says. A seizure is an example of a dramatic symptom. About three of every 10 patients with a brain tumor are diagnosed after having a seizure, he explains. Other symptoms are less obvious. For example, you might notice memory problems or weakness on one side of your body. If you have symptoms that suggest a brain tumor (see box), tell your doctor. Your doctor will give you a physical exam and ask about your personal and family health history. You may need to have additional tests. Tumors can be detected by imaging methods such as MRI or CT scans. Brain imaging technology has really changed the way we are able to visualize abnormalities, Dr. Gilbert says, adding it allows brain surgeons to learn as much as possible about the tumor and remove it more safely. NIH researchers are continuing to look for ways to better detect and treat brain tumors. Treatments differ depending on the type and location of the tumor and can involve surgery, radiation (beams of high energy rays aimed at the tumor) and/or drugs that kill or block the growth of cancer cells. Usually, brain tumor treatment requires a team of health-care professionals that includes surgeons, cancer specialists, nutritionists, nurses and mental health providers. The team does more than treat the tumor. They also try to minimize its impact on a patients quality of life. There is a definite advantage to being cared for by people who do this on a routine basis, Dr. Gilbert says. Doctor schedules info sessions about medical marijuanaDr. Clint Potter of Advanced Individualized Medicine will discuss medical marijuana, answer questions and help potential patients determine whether they are eligible for the treatment in sessions starting at 6 p.m. Wednesdays, Nov. 8 and 29, at his office at 720 Goodlette Road N. in Naples. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2013 revealed that nearly 8-in-10 doctors approved of the use of medical marijuana. A study in California published a year later found that 92 percent of medical marijuana patients said it alleviated symptoms of their serious medical conditions. Amendment 2, signed into Florida law in November 2016, provides for the use of medical marijuana under the supervision of specially licensed physicians. Finally in Florida we can be assured that patients are receiving safe, high quality cannabis and can avoid the risks of unknown mixes, from illegal drugs, Dr. Potter said. Studies have showed that medical marijuana can help people suffering from back injuries, chronic pain, cancer, multiple sclerosis and a host of other debilitating conditions, he said, adding, Patients should have access to something that will help them. Space is limited at the sessions and RSVPs are required. Sign up at www. naplesaim.com/register. Anyone who would like to register for medical marijuana the night of either of the events should bring medical records to support their diagnosis. Those who have the proper records and who are determined eligible after a consultation with Dr. Potter will be able to complete registration that night. For more information, call Advanced Individualized Medicine at 260-3880. POTTER Possible symptoms of a brain tumorThe symptoms of a brain tumor depend on its size, type and location. The most common ones are listed below. Although these symptoms do not mean you have a brain tumor, you should talk with your doctor if you experience any of the following: >> Severe headaches >> Muscle jerking or twitching (seizures or convulsions) >> Nausea and vomiting >> Changes in speech, vision or hearing >> Problems balancing or walking >> Changes in your mood, personality or ability to concentrate >> Problems with memory >> Numbness, tingling or weakness in the arms or legs

FGCU College of Education hosts childrens mental health conferenceFlorida Gulf Coast University continues addressing the mental health needs of Southwest Floridas youngest residents with its seventh annual Children & Youth Mental Health Conference set for Saturday, Nov. 18. Titled Community Responsiveness for Collaborative Action and coordinated by the FGCU College of Education, the conference takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Cohen Center ballroom on the FGCU campus. Attendance is free, but registration is required and can be completed at www.fgcu.edu/childrenshealth. Each year, the conference aims to reduce stigma by increasing a general awareness of mental health disorders in children and youth, according to Diane Kratt, an FGCU instructor and student-teaching coordinator in the College of Education. The conference also creates opportunities for all stakeholders to talk, collaborate and champion for childrens mental health, she added. Small-group sessions are designed for educators, mental health providers, students, social services workers and parents. Several community-based organizations will also provide information about their services. This years keynote speaker is Rajni Shankar-Brown, associate professor and the Jessie Ball DuPont Chair of Social Justice Education at Stetson University. As a social justice teacher-scholar, I am committed to building and nurturing empathy and promoting mental wellness, both in terms of prevention and response, Ms. Shankar-Brown said. In her keynote address and her workshop session she will address a variety of topics, including global-national-state-local equity issues, socialemotional development, trauma-informed care, empathy, culturally responsive competence, resilience and the importance of collective responsibility and engagement focused on promoting positive mental health in children and youth. Mental health is inextricably intertwined with equity issues, she said. And mental wellness awareness, advocacy and action are vital to the advancement of social justice. Several Southwest Florida organizations help FGCU put on this event. This years primary sponsor is the David Lawrence Center for mental health and addiction recovery in Collier County. We feel it is critical to continue raising awareness and advancing evidence-based care regarding the vitally important social and emotional challenges that face todays youth, said Scott Burgess, CEO of the center. Research demonstrates the importance of early identification and intervention with childrens mental health issues. Effectively addressing the needs associated with these issues enables children to live in wellness and achieve their full potential. Continental breakfast will be served, and lunch is available for purchase on campus.

Courage at both ends of the leash those words are engraved on one of the many memorials throughout the world honoring military working dogs. Canine loyalty, intelligence, mobility and ingenuity are among the attributes that make dogs valuable to the armed forces. The most common breeds are Belgian malinois, German shepherd and Labrador retriever. Doberman pinschers were famous during World War II as the devil dogs of the Marines. One of the best known was Kurt, the first canine casualty on Guam, killed by incoming mortars and grenades after he alerted troops to the presence of Japanese forces. A war dog memorial on the island features a sculpture of Kurt by artist Susan Bahary and the words always faithful. It lists the names of all 25 Marine war dogs who lost their lives there in 1944. Not every military working dog fits the big and tough stereotype. Smoky, a 4-pound Yorkshire terrier, was adopted by Cpl. William A. Wynne after she was found in an abandoned foxhole on New Guinea during World War II. For two years, the little dog nicknamed Yorkie Doodle Dandy rode in a backpack, went on combat and reconnaissance flights and ate Spam and C-rations with the best of them. She proved her valor and value by warning Wynne of incoming shells and, most famously, pulling a telegraph wire through a 70-foot pipe with only an 8-inch diameter. Her feat saved ground crewmen from a grueling and dangerous dig. Another uncommon canine war hero was Sergeant Stubby, a Boston terrier noted as the most decorated dog during World War I. The official mascot of the U.S. 102nd Infantry Regiment, his exploits included alerting his regiment to mustard gas attacks and incoming shells, locating wounded soldiers and capturing a German soldier, grabbing and holding him by the seat of his pants. In the trenches in France for 18 months, he participated in 17 battles and was a celebrity at home. His story hits the silver screen, with Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero set for release on April 13. Todays combat dogs undergo rigorous training. In Afghanistan, dogs may wear cameras and scout areas before troops move in. They dont typically enjoy the same media exposure as Smoky and Stubby, but Belgian malinois Cairo, a Navy SEAL dog, stepped into the spotlight in 2011 after taking part in Operation Neptune Spear, during which Osama bin Laden was killed. Last month, five military dogs were honored at Capitol Hill with American Humanes Lois Pope K-9 Medal of Courage, awarded for extraordinary valor and service. The canine honorees were Coffee, a chocolate Lab who sought out IEDs and other security threats in Afghanistan; black Lab Alphie, an explosive-detection dog in Afghanistan who now works for the TSA; Capa, an explosives and patrol dog who also received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for meritorious service; black Lab Ranger, who served as an explosives-detection dog in Afghanistan and Iraq; and posthumously, Gabe, who was sprung from a Houston animal shelter and trained as a specialized search dog, a career in which he earned more than 40 awards. Approximately 1,600 dogs currently serve in U.S. militar y forces.

NAPLES 239.594.1555ACROSS FROM WATERSIDE SHOPS ONE BLOCK NORTH OF PINE RIDGE ON U.S.41LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED! CELEBRATING OUR 16TH YEAR! Unique One of A Kind Finds and Name Brands You Know, All At Unbelievable Everyday Low Warehouse Prices! BRAND NEW ARRIVALS IN ALL DEPARTMENTS Older, wiser, happier and with a new email address Im about to take a huge leap and do something Ive never done before. And quite frankly, Im terrified. No, Im not going to jump out of a perfectly good plane, go swimming in the Everglades, or get Botox (again). Im going to change my personal email address. Because not only have I had the same one address for 20 years, its an AOL address. If you ever want to be ridiculed by anyone under the age of 40, then give them your email address that ends in @aol.com. When I do this over the phone, I often hear people suppress a chuckle; when it happens in person, Millennials look at me like I just rode in on a horse and buggy to deliver a telegram while wearing a petticoat. Leaving the fine folks at America Online (I must admit, Ill miss that cheery voice: Youve got MAIL!) is only part of the leap, howeer. The other part is leaving a part of my identity behind. When I set up my AOL account way back when, I was writing a social column called The Downtown Diva for a daily newspaper. So it made sense to have a Downtown Diva email address. The Diva was a single girl in her early 30s who loved going to dance clubs, never missed a happy hour and was known for wearing ridiculously high heels, rocking a feather boa and chain-smoking. She was a notorious flirt, always stayed out way too late and had a closet filled with sparkly cocktail dresses and evening gowns. The Diva was a size 4. Her phone was a pink flip-phone. She wore a lot of rhinestones, and when a good song came on the jukebox, she and her girlfriends would climb on top of the bar and dance. The Diva didnt just write about parties; the party started when she and her squad walked in. The Diva was a part of me. Not completely me, mind you I had quiet moments, and a family, and sometimes I even cooked. But for the most part, and for most of my adulthood, I was the Diva. I was 40 when I met the man who would become my husband. On our fourth or fifth date, we went to a bar with some friends, and when a song I loved started playing, I instinctively started to climb on the bar. Todd cocked his head to the side and asked, What are you doing? Dancing on the bar! I laughed as a couple of girlfriends started to join in. Why? Theres a dance floor, he said. Come dance with me. And as he took my hand to dance on ground level, I realized that part of the Diva was falling away. When I stopped writing my social column, everyone still called me the Diva. There still are times when Im actually introduced as The Diva but Im more grounded now. I actually cook almost every night, and I enjoy it. I needed a feather boa for an event recently and had to borrow one from a friend because mine are all gone. I still enjoy happy hour, but only now and then, and Im usually home by sundown. Going to Sunday brunch with friends has taken the place of Saturday nights at the club. And due to a knee surgery and an ankle injury, wedge heels have replaced stilettos. I quit smoking seven years ago, and my size 4 ship has sailed off into the sunset. Now slow and cumbersome, my AOL Diva email address was recently hacked and is filled with spam. Ive known for a while that I need to switch providers, but Ive put it off because I was worried that giving up the email address meant giving up a part of myself. Ive finally realized that the change is about moving forward not going backward. I still love to shop, and while I do go to bars sometimes, I dont dance on them (thank God there were no cell phones that took video 20 years ago and there was no social media I dodged that bullet). So while the email address is being phased out, there will always be a little Diva in me shes just older, wiser and much happier now. stephanieDAVIS email@example.com
CEO strives to safeguard client values through education BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comSouthwest Florida is a unique community in that so many people from all walks of life have ties here. Many seasonal residents began their love affair with the region through a family vacation or from friends who came down. Tamara Surratt is no different. The Illinois native vacationed in Naples every year with her family, then her parents moved down when she left for college. Thirty years later, Ms. Surratt is as embedded in the community as one can be. Shes the leader of Legacy Family Office, a multi-family wealth management and coordination company based out of Coconut Point in Estero. The first person in her family to get a college education, Ms. Surratt has made education a priority throughout her lifes initiatives. She earned an MBA from Florida Gulf Coast University and serves as chairman of the board of the Florida SouthWestern State College Foundation. FSW was 25 years old when I got here. Now its 55, she said. Ive watched it, along with FGCU in its infancy, as it blossomed into the amazing institution that it is. At Legacy Family Office, her mantra revolves around ensuring future generations of wealthy families understand their role in safeguarding their predecessors success. She spent her career in the bank and private client world before deciding to strike off on her own 11 years ago. I felt my clients needed more comprehensive solutions for passing their wealth to the next generation, she said. Legacy Family Office is aptly named; the firms top priority is preserving each familys legacy and all its aspects: its wealth, vision, mission, hopes and dreams for the future and the values that have brought them to this point. Those values helped them amass their wealth to pass it on, Ms. Surratt said. Ive been blessed to work with some amazing clients. Ive learned so much from them and the experiences theyve shared over the years. She shared stories of some who took mortgages out on their homes and had both husband and wife working multiple jobs to support the family business until it took off. The values that have built the wealth are so inspiring to me their work ethic is unmatched. Education had been a part of Ms. Surratts life for so long, it was a natural move to transition into the educational realm with FSW. BUSINESS NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017A28 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM I BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@ oridaweekly.comF THERES ONE THING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT the promoters of antiques shows, it is this: They are an enthusiastic bunch. Youre never too old to have a great childhood, and Im having the best one, said Kay Puchstein, who along with her husband, Bill, promotes the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, which kicks off its season Nov. 3-5. They will bring together several hundred dealers for what is the largest monthly show in the state. Judy Allman, who for years has run shows in Punta Gorda, Venice and St. Petersburg, is happy to once again have a show in Naples (Jan. 27-28) after an absence of a few years. Its a nice event for Naples. Theres not much going on show-wise there, but there are some great shops and good antiques and good interest in fine things, she said. If Mrs. Allmans shows offer high-end antiques, the West Palm Beach and Naples shows run by Palm Beach Show Group kick it up a notch even higher. We offer a broad section of fine art, antiques and jewelry from 2,000 years ago to today, said Scott Diament, the companys president and CEO. Objects there may be priced from a few hundred dollars to the millions. Im certainly offering things at my events other than what others are offering, he said. Most shows are either smaller or are not vetted shows or they have a different product mix. Hes especially proud of the range of lectures and the pure entertainment value of visitors being able to see things they wouldnt see elsewhere. Mrs. Allman and her husband, Steve, also promote shows in New York and across the Midwest, and they have a winter home in Naples. The west coast is getting more and more in tune with antiques, art and design.

The company he formed joined with others in 1902 to become International Harvester. I built my first school bus in 1922, supplied trucks for the building of the Hoover Dam and made torpedo parts, bulldozers, trucks, cannon shells and tanks (among other things) during World War II. In 1986 I took on a new name and have been focused on producing commercial and military trucks, buses and diesel engines. Today, based in Lisle, Illinois, I rake in about $8 billion annually.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Can You Trust Your Financial Adviser?Many people who work as financial advisers arent legally required to have their clients best interests at heart. Unlike lawyers or doctors, who are bound by oath to do no harm or to represent their clients interests faithfully, financial planners and advisers are free to sell any manner of subpar products. The fiduciary rule, proposed under the Obama administration, seeks to resolve this conflict by making advisers legally bound to serve their clients interests in matters related to retirement accounts. (Some already do so, of course.) It hasnt fully taken effect yet, though, and the new administration in Washington is reviewing the rule, with its future hanging in the balance. Why would anyone object to the rule? Well, it all comes down to fees. Even a small difference in the fees between one investment and another can make a huge difference over a long period. When financial advisers recommend high-fee products in order to line their own pockets, it hurts your ability to save for retirement. This can happen if, for example, a financial adviser was being paid a commission by a mutual fund to steer people toward that particular fund. The problem is systemic. A study of the 1.2 million financial advisers registered in the U.S. from 2005 to 2015 found that 7 percent of them had misconduct on their records. The problem is even more pronounced at big firms, where as many as 15 percent of advisers have a stained record. To make matters worse, Roughly one third of advisers with misconduct are repeat offenders. The White House noted last year that conflicts of interest in retirement advice cost Americas families an estimated $17 billion a year. Even if the worst happens and the fiduciary rule is struck down, you can still take steps to protect yourself. If you have a financial adviser, make sure they are a fiduciary and legally required to put your interests first. Advisers designated as fee only wont be looking to earn commissions from selling you products, and you can seek one at napfa.org. Less Reputable Than ExpectedAbout 30-plus years ago, I responded to a cold call from a financial services company and invested in several penny stocks that all lost money. I believe later someone from the company ended up going to jail due to the scam. I mean, they advertised with a big jet helicopter landing in front of a very impressive high-rise on a plush campus on the doggoned Meet the Press TV program. Who would have suspected that anything shady was going on? Not me, of course. R.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: People are still falling for cold callers aggressive pushes, but you were at a major disadvantage 30 years ago, as you couldnt look up the financial company online and you couldnt do any research into the companies behind the stocks being pushed, either. Today its relatively easy to look up information on companies and if you arent able to find much, thats a big red flag right there. Many penny stock companies dont have websites offering copies of audited financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, making it hard to determine if they have any revenue, not to mention earnings. One of the best things to do if you get an unsolicited phone call from someone pitching an investment is simply to hang up. Whats BrewingIf youre looking for a dividend-paying stock with solid growth potential, consider the company behind that pricey cup of coffee youre drinking. Theres a lot to like about Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX). For starters, it boasts more than 26,000 stores worldwide and opened 575 net new ones in just the last quarter, aiming for 37,000 stores by 2021. Its Starbucks Rewards membership tops 13 million and is still growing, and the Starbucks mobile app has been very successful, too, with about a quarter of orders being placed or paid for via the app. The company has been expanding its offerings, aiming to sell more food products and packaged goods in addition to coffee. Meanwhile, Starbucks has great growth potential abroad, and is targeting population-rich China, among other locations. There were recently 2,800 locations in 130 cities in mainland China. Overall, Starbucks revenue and earnings have been growing by double-digit rates annually, on average, over the past five years, and annual revenue tops $20 billion. Remember that dividend? It recently yielded 1.8 percent, and it has been increased more than threefold over the past five years. Starbucks price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently near 28 may seem steep, but its reasonable for such a growing company, and its lower than it has been in much of the past decade. (The Motley Fool has recommended and owns shares of Starbucks.) I trace my roots back to 1923, when m y f ounder agreed to produce a series of short films. He later produced Steamboat Willie, Silly Symphonies, and 1937s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, my first feature-length animated film. I debuted a whole new land in 1955 and had a famous club on TV. Today Im one of the worlds largest entertainment companies, owning businesses such as media networks, parks and resorts, studio entertainment, interactive media and consumer products. My businesses include ABC, ESPN, Pixar, Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios, among others. I rake in more than $50 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Disney) Women at the HelmQI see that GlaxoSmithKline recently named Emma Walmsley as its new CEO. What other major companies have women CEOs? P.S., Maryville, TennesseeAAs of earlier this year, there were 26 women heading S&P 500 companies just 5 percent. They included General Motors (Mary Barra), IBM (Virginia Rometty), Duke Energy (Lynn Good), Lockheed Martin (Marillyn Hewson), PepsiCo (Indra Nooyi), General Dynamics (Phebe Novakovic), Hershey (Michele Buck), Occidental Petroleum (Vicki Hollub) and Mattel (Margo Georgiadis). Two other financially powerful women include Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Christine Lagarde, who heads the International Monetary Fund.Companies might do well to appoint more female CEOs. According to research by Quantopian, Fortune 1000 companies led by women outperformed the S&P 500 by 226 percent between 2002 and 2014. ***QWhat does the insurance term float mean? A.G., Saginaw, MichiganAWarren Buffett, who heads insurance giant Berkshire Hathaway, explained it well in his 2002 letter to shareholders:[F]loat is money we hold but dont own. In an insurance operation, float arises because premiums are received before losses are paid, an interval that sometimes extends over many years. During that time, the insurer invests the money. This pleasant activity typically carries with it a downside: The premiums that an insurer takes in usually do not cover the losses and expenses it eventually must pay. That leaves it running an underwriting loss, which is the cost of float. An insurance business has value if its cost of float over time is less than the cost the company would otherwise incur to obtain funds. But the business is a lemon if its cost of float is higher than market rates for money.Learn more from the insurance industry itself at iii.org. Want more information about stocks?

A30 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYIt used to be primarily the east coast, but on the west coast now, its like a little shopping mecca in a lot of places, including Punta Gorda and Arcadia, she said. Mrs. Puchstein banks on the camaraderie of the shows. I think seeing all the people, all the dealers you havent seen since last season. Its like a class reunion, she said. Her November show will have a couple of hundred dealers from across the country. That number climbs to around 1,000 during the February extravaganza, the Puchsteins biggest show of the year. That show has changed over the years as tastes have changed. In the 1990s, vendors brought out traditional collectibles porcelain, glass, antique furniture and silver. You still see those items, but customers seem to be more geared toward buying objects for their decorative qualities. There also is a lot of jewelry these days. It makes it difficult because these young kids want modern and a sparse look, Mrs. Puchstein said, adding, People still like to come and look. Shes counting on that as she adds two overlapping shows one at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Show (Jan. 5-7) and one at the Miami-Dade County fairgrounds (Jan. 6-8). She expects the Coconut Creek show to be a smaller show, with high-end vendors; the Miami-Dade show will be a traditional mix of antiques and collectibles. That highlights the difference in markets from one coast to another, too. Traditional antiques are the stalwarts of the Allmans Punta Gorda and Venice shows. Its really good American furniture, quality lighting, paintings things like that, Mrs. Allman said. Original finish furniture, smaller pieces of furniture and portraits. The majority of the show is made up of fine antiques silver, really good glass. Bill Pitt brings in some of the best paperweights Ive seen. Shes especially pleased with the quality of the venues the Naples show will be held in a luxury hotel. The Charlotte Harbor Events Center was completely rebuilt after it was leveled in 2004 by Hurricane Charley. And Venice is no slouch. The community center is sweet and elegant, with beautiful designs, Florida architecture, she said. It kind of lends a sophisticated look to the show. The tony Palm Beach County Convention Center, where Mr. Diaments show will be held, is no slouch, either. Nor is the pavilion where he hosts his Naples show. He loves seeing the process that led to objects creation. Visit Pottery Barn, he said. Lots of this was copied from major design. Come to a show that we put on, you can see the thought process that led to it. That makes an object so much more interesting. Up North, Mrs. Puchstein deals in fine Early American furniture. Recent acquisitions include a toy wagon, a sheep painting, a tramp art frame and a piece of blue and white stoneware pottery. But shes just as delighted to add to her Patti Playpal collection. Mrs. Puchstein has 42 of the large-scale dolls, made by the Ideal Toy Company for three years in the early s. The gang I think its an orphanage. I could be doing worse than collecting doll babies, she laughed. Shes a consummate collector, but perhaps Mr. Diament says it best about collecting. He knows it when he sees something special. I would say that I almost get this tingling feeling, he said, adding, When something really stimulates you. I guess it makes you feel more complete. Hes been collecting since he was a boy. Mr. Diament has in his office a gold nugget thats soldered in the bottom of a 19th-century gold-mining pan. I really got chills when I saw it. Youre digging around the dirt and this nugget appears, he said. Thats what all collecting feels like to me. Its almost a symbol of all collecting that you work really hard to find these objects, then when you see it, it speaks to you.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 BUSINESS A31 Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?Product knowledge is the key to the rare coin, precious metal and jewelry business. Besides handling hundreds of millions of dollars in actual product, we attend trade shows and are very active in online communities that disburse data on all types of high end personal property. While building the business, and we are still building, we have strived for the highest levels of trust with our customers and vendors. Doing the right thing has become an overused cliche but in the coin and jewelry business you must live by Do The Right Thing or you dont achieve the level of a company like Gulfcoast Coin & Jewelry. If you have a business idea that you think will help you grow your company research the opportunity and if the numbers work, go ahead and execute. We opened Gulfcoast Auctions offering only 50 pieces of jewelry. Today we offer over 1,000 different auction items monthly, selling in over 25 countries.What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? We see clients taking their business back to the brick and mortar, old-time, family-owned jewelry stores, because they demand product knowledge, trust and personalized service. Since the real estate bubble and bank crisis, people have been driven to hard assets. Precious metals soared for several years, however, prices have dropped dramatically due to a very strong U.S. dollar. At these low prices for precious metals, rare coins and diamonds, people are buying more precious metal products than ever before. Recently, several governments have suspended making precious metal products because they could not obtain the metals to make it, due to high retail demand. What will you base your success on for 2018? We would like to continue opening new stores throughout Florida. We feel our business model is unique in as much that no other business combines fine jewelry, diamonds and high-end time pieces, rare coin and precious metals trading, full-service international auction services and a bank vault depository for your valuables in each store. How are you responding to changes in the local economy? We live in paradise, and as baby boomers retire, we feel strongly they will continue to come to Southwest Florida and have a positive impact. How are you recruiting new talent into your organization? When we see intelligence and open-mindedness in a candidate or employee who wants to excel in their career we train and support them 100 percent. Superior product knowledge and excitement to share that with our clients is the key. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? Our favorite coin is the Fugio Cent minted in 1787. Benjamin Franklin was behind this coin, and he had the wording Mind Your Business on the coin. We feel the same. With your finances, your health and family Mind Your Business. What is your superpower?Our passion for what we do. The passion for coin collecting has existed as long as coins them selves and I was bitten by the coin collecting bug. A true mark of global distinction, a GIA credential is a symbol of knowledge and trust. Denise has extensive education and training and that knowledge and practical skills translate to her love for gems and jewelry. What do you truly love about working here in Lee County?

A32 BUSINESS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBy the time I was 35, Id been in school for 30 years, she said with a laugh. I went straight from my bachelors degree into working and began my masters degree part-time. As chairman of the board for the FSW Foundation, she devotes much of her free time to raising money to make education available for deserving students. Last year she funded a scholarship that put three students through a full year of the program at FSW at no cost. Half of the fund was earmarked for a pediatric nursing student and half for nursing students dedicated to serving the mental health community. Theres a huge shortage of mental health nurses its something not talked about a lot, she said. A unique aspect about the FSW program, she added, is that most graduates stay in the community and serve this area because there is such a huge need for nurses here. We cant educate them fast enough. Ms. Surratt strongly believes the college age is an extremely formative time for anyone. The education process starts very young, especially with my clients and their families. When they get in to college, theres an appropriate level of disclosure to help them understand the role they have as wealth owners its important to have those money conversations early and as age appropriate. Her investment in education has paid dividends she couldnt have imagined when she began her odyssey more than three decades ago. Education has changed my life, my sons life, my granddaughters life, my community, she said The ripples of education span so far from the student themselves Its worth our investment, time and treasure to make that a reality for as many as we can. Interview with Tamara SurrattBusiness mentor: Warren Buffett. I look at him as a role model who built wealth over his lifetime and hasnt let it change him. His values havent deteriorated. He still continues to live the lifestyle that he lived before he was the one of the wealthiest individuals in America. First job: My hometown in Illinois had a population of 700, and I worked in the downtown grocery store as a cashier, long before the days of digital scanners and computers. We hand-keyed everything and had to make change in our head Still to this day Im very good at a 10-key on a register. Advice for someone starting out in your field: Concentration is the key to accumulating wealth. Diversification is the key to preservation. Business words of wisdom: You should give your children enough money to do what they want, but not enough to not do anything. Any job openings? Not right now.CEOFrom page 28 DAVIS MAUTERSTOCK WOLLMAN KRUGER PETERSON VERES
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 BUSINESS A33 LeeHealth.org We all share something important a total commitment to the health and well-being of everyone in the Southwest Florida community. Whatever the need, we partner with you to help you keep your body healthy, your approach positive and your future bright.Neighbors, Colleagues, Family with the Community.JOINED HEALTH What is the most significant change youve seen in your industry over the last year?The health care environment is changing rapidly throughout the U.S., and Lee Health is part of that transformation. One of the most visible changes this past year is our new name. Lee Memorial Health System officially marked its 100th anniversary last October and began a new century of caring as Lee Health. The new identity reflects the future direction of health care delivery, which is moving away from a provider of episodic care to partnering with the community and individuals to live a healthy life. Lee Health is taking a more proactive role in shaping, supporting and inspiring our communitys health and well-being. How are you responding to changes in the local economy?In its role as the leading provider of health care in Lee County, Lee Health must be responsive to the demand for health services as the community grows. Over the next ten years, we will invest more than $1 billion in capital projects in our community. We have a number of different projects underway, but the two most prominent are Lee Health Coconut Point, an innovative outpatient facility in the Estero/Bonita Springs area that will include a freestanding emergency department among other services, and the expansion of Gulf Coast Medical Center, which will add 275 more beds. What will you base your success on for 2018? Well-run health systems typically use a scorecard tied to its strategic goals to measure how well it is meeting its objectives. A scorecard increases organizational focus on execution and results by measuring those things that truly matter. The Lee Health scorecard identifies key performance indicators in five strategic areas, with service, safety and quality being of particular importance. It is publicly available in the About Us section of our website at www.LeeHealth.org. How are you using technology to improve your business? Over the past six years, Lee Health has installed a new electronic medical record system called Epic which has transformed how we access patient information. It is impossible to share all the ways that Epic has led to better quality and safer care, but a few examples are reducing duplicate tests, alerts that warn of potential medication interactions, and ensuring important health screenings take place. Telemedicine is another way technology is improving how we provide care. The growing use of smart phones and tablets, coupled with advances in encryption to protect personal health information is making telehealth an attractive option. Lee Health is using it in the treatment of stroke, behavioral health and palliative care, several pediatric subspecialties and to home monitor patients with certain chronic diseases. Telemedicine allows patients to be cared for in their own home, which is a major convenience and cost savings for them. How are you growing and developing your employee skills? In health care you are only as good as your employees, so Lee Health puts a tremendous amount of energy into furthering the skill set of our employees through training and education. We incentivize employees to continue to learn and grow and provide scholarships to pay for advanced education. In fact, it is so important to us that earlier this year our Board of Directors adopted education as one of Lee Healths core values, along with respect, excellence and compassion. We are very pleased to have Lee Health ranked 29 out of 500 large companies included in Forbes magazines Americas Best Employers 2017 list.Can you tell us about a new hire who will make a positive impact this coming year?We are adding a new position called Acute Care Medical Officer (ACMO) to our leadership team. Each of our hospitals will add this role, which is a physician who works in team leadership with our vice president of patient care services the nursing leader at each hospital. Together the ACMO and the VP of patient care are jointly responsible for the overall quality of medical care at each hospital campus. We are adding this position to expand the role of physicians in our daily operations to improve clinical outcomes, patient experience and patient safety. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate?When you work in an organization whose mission is to empower healthier lives through care and compassion, you dont have to look far to find inspiration. Every day and every night thousands of employees work with purpose and enthusiasm to make a difference in the health of our patients. I spend some time each month working side by side in a variety of units and departments to stay in tune with daily operations and connect with our employees, an activity that continually inspires me. Who is a mentor to you within your industry?Jim Nathan, who recently stepped aside as president of Lee Health after more than 30 years at the helm, has been a mentor to me for many years. Jim embodies the concept of Caring People, Inspiring Health, and I am grateful for the opportunity to build on the legacy he has left for our health system and our community.

WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 | B1WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMCOASTAL REAL ESTATE GUIDENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY SEE NABOR, B3 COURTESY PHOTOSLocal market rebounding from Irmas punch SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYDespite Hurricane Irma, which impeded activity for three weeks in September and led to a 30 percent decrease in closed sales compared with September 2016, the Naples area housing market maintained positive traction during the third quarter of 2017. The newest market report from the Naples Area Board of Realtors shows there were 398 closed sales in September this year. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). The month proved challenging for the real estate market as homeowners and agents were forced to wait while public and utility services rebuilt or repaired infrastructure damaged by the storm. The September statistics affected total outcomes for the third quarter of 2017. However, year-to-date numbers tell a different story, showing activity in pending sales, closed sales and median price categories were up year over year at the end of the quarter. To withstand a hurricane and still outperform last years activity is a clear sign of market resilience, said Budge Huskey, president of Premier Sothebys International Realty. The hurricane hit us in the right month, said Mike Hughes, vice president and general manager for Downing-Frye Realty Inc. September is typically when the housing market takes a breath before it begins to intensify for a new season, he added. Yet despite a direct hit by a major hurricane, overall closed sales for the third quarter increased 3 percent (year over year). Activity in July and August outperformed the same months last year, Mr. Hughes added. If the hurricane had not hit the area in September, the

A 55 percent decrease in pending sales for September is equivalent to three weeks of inactivity, said Coco Amar, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties. These sales didnt disappear, they are just delayed. Bill Coffey of Amerivest Realty Naples agreed and said his office saw more closings in the first week of October than it did for the entire month of September. The hurricanes force slowed inventory in September, which resulted in a third-quarter decrease of 9 percent. Jeff Jones at the Naples-Park Shore office of Coldwell Banker attributed this to homeowners either delaying to list because they evacuated or removing a listing because they needed time to clean up and make repairs after Irma. The hurricane created big concerns and delays from banks, too, Mr. Jones said, adding, Most lenders are requiring re-inspections and re-appraisals of properties after the hurricane.One element the hurricane failed to harm was the continued growth in property value for Naples. Overall median closed prices in the third quarter of 2017 increased 3 percent to $320,000 compared to $312,000 in the third quarter of 2016.Fortunately, media in most of the core areas where our buyers come from didnt overhype the storm, which helped obscure fears, said Cindy Carroll of the real estate appraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll Inc. This is going to be a very good history lesson for us because the hurricane hit during a time of stable market activity. By January, though, I think our brush with Irma will be forgotten. Ms. Carroll added that sales of existing homes are poised to increase in the coming months too because much of the labor force stepped away from new construction to work for companies that provide a variety of property maintenance, including tree removal and lawn debris cleanup. Wes Kunkel of Kunkle International Realty added that material costs for new construction might increase, too, as there will be shortages across the country due to the hurricanes in Florida and Texas and wildfires in California. Ms. Carroll said delays in new home construction might spur an increase in existing home values, especially if inventory does not keep up with the pace of sales. Compared to other tropical secondhome destinations like Puerto Rico, the Southwest Florida housing market fared quite well after it faced a hurricane. NABOR broker analysts predicted the area might see an uptick in sales from buyers who had their eyes set on an island home in the Caribbean.

B10 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYResidents embracing Naples Squares downtown lifestyleThe irresistible allure of downtown Naples is known worldwide. For area residents and visitors alike, the downtown districts magical combination of sunkissed beaches, an eclectic assortment of shopping and gallery venues, sumptuous eateries, and late-night gathering places has a magnetic appeal that cannot be denied. Yet, for all its charm and unmistakable vibrancy, there are elements within the downtown scene that have, by virtue of geography or happenstance, remained disconnected and, in many ways, inaccessible to those who cherish an urban-like, walk-able lifestyle in a luxurious condominium setting. Until now. The award-winning Ronto Groups vision for Naples Square at the corner of Goodlette-Frank Road and 5th Avenue South has been grounded in the desire to create a place that offers a walkable, bikeable lifestyle that puts downtown Naples at the communitys doorstep. As the residents of the completed Phases I and II residences have discovered, Rontos vision is now a reality that will continue to evolve as Phases III and IV are completed. By night, the bike racks in the secure parking garage at the Phase I and Phase II buildings are full, ready to fulfill the next days adventures. Residents enjoy the cool evening breezes as they stroll past the lighted fountains and finely manicured streetscape on Naples Squares redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South, making their way to the eclectic shopping and gallery venues, eateries, and late-night gathering places just a short walk away on 5th Avenue South, at Bayfront, or at Tin City. For the first time, the entire downtown district is enjoying a level of connectivity that offers new possibilities, not only for residents of Naples Square, but also for downtowns residents and visitors who are intent on enjoying every facet of Naples from Bayfront west to the beach. Connection and accessibility to all facets of downtown living are at the heart of Rontos vision at Naples Square. In keeping with that vision, Ronto is developing plans for The Shoppes at Naples Square, a combination of retail and restaurant space that will be developed on the eastern edge of the Naples Square site. The project will compliment and complete Naples Squares walkable lifestyle. Ronto anticipates retail openings in 2019. Gulfshore Playhouse has completed its purchase of a three-acre tract on the northern end of the Naples Square property. As planned, Gulfshore Playhouse will build a multimillion-dollar, 56,000 square feet complex that will include two theaters and an education wing to support programming for children, adults and families. Naples Square is not only uniting the downtown district, but also enhancing the allure of the entire area. The communitys site plan by Matthew Kragh, AIA, owner of MHK Architecture & Planning, ties Naples Square into the fabric of the Old Naples street grid system and into the current and future plans of the Naples Pathway Committee and the City of Naples. Even as it has established a new level of connectivity for downtown, Naples Square has also enriched the districts visual appeal. The landscape design along the redesigned segment of 3rd Avenue South was created by Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design, Inc. Andreas design has brought a park-like ambiance to Naples Square while merging pavered roadways, entry water features, and the fountain roundabouts with Washingtonia and Medjool Date palm trees and a mix of plantings. Oak trees will ultimately create a canopy to provide shade and further soften the building mass. Plantings that will perform well in Naples heat and humidity are also incorporated in the design, and include Clusia, Variegated Dwarf Schefflera, and Bougainvillea. Asian Jasmine, a carpet-like ground cover, is used in the pedestrian areas. Naples Squares key intersections, crossings, and building entry features are identified by tall palms. Building corners that are adjacent to the communitys roundabouts are softened by tall, scattered height Washingtonia palms. MHKs mixture of Bermuda, British West Indies, and Coastal Contemporary architectural styles is bringing a timeless flavor to Naples Square. The design maintains the integrity of the residential units view corridors while presenting a new downtown landmark. Naples Squares u-shaped buildings will be situated with their open ends facing one another. The juxtaposition of the buildings allowed Kragh to create amenity courtyards over each buildings parking level. The courtyard amenity decks feature a resort-style heated swimming pool and spa, sundeck, pavilion bar with gas grills, and a gas fire table with seating. Each building will have its own pool and club room and there will be two fitness centers. Andreas amenity deck landscape design incorporates green spaces, Asian Jasmine ground cover, raised-planters with date palms, and arbors with vine plantings to create a garden-like effect. Additional planters provide a colorful note of separation between the terraces of the garden level residences and the edges of the plaza. Ronto is accepting purchase agreements for Phase III residences. Eight Phase III floor plans range from 1,460 to 3,238 square feet under air and are priced from $695,000. The one and two-story, two and three-bedroom plus den plans include open-concept living areas and open-air terraces. The plans feature 10 ceilings, designer kitchens, chic owners bedrooms and designer flooring. The Phase III kitchens will feature an enhanced appliance package with a gas cooktop and hood and a wall mounted oven and microwave. Phase III purchase agreements worth nearly $32 million have been processed and construction of the Phase III building is expected to start in 4th quarter of this year. The Naples Square Sales Gallery at 100 South Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples is open daily. Visit NaplesSquare.com. Above: The walkable lifestyle created by The Ronto Group at Naples Square connects residents to shopping and gallery venues throughout the downtown district. Left: Upon completion, Naples Square will include four residential buildings with a total of approximately 300 residences. The Ronto Group is developing plans for The Shoppes at Naples Square, a combination of retail and restaurant space that will be developed on the eastern edge of the communitys site. Below: Naples Square is within a short walk of restaurants on 5th Avenue South, at Bayfront, and at Tin City.ADVERTORIAL Above:ThewalkablelifestylecreatedbyThe A R t d S a G S t c s B A

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKalea Bays first tower nears selloutSales strong in Tower 2 The first residential tower at Kalea Bay, the gated, resortlifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, is 90 percent sold. Of the 120 residences in the 22-story tower, only 12 remain. The approaching sellout of Tower 1 and the overwhelming response from our buyers prompted us to release Tower 2 earlier this year, stated Inga Lodge, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kalea Bay. Currently, the number of residences already under contract in the second tower exceeds the $60 million mark. The new 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available in Tower 2. Residences 1 and 6 are 3-bedroom plus den/3.5 bath plans with 3,704 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, have 3,791 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are 4-bedroom/4.5-bath plans also with 3,791 total square feet. Residents will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, said Lodge. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, luxury cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our floor plans have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for the way people live today, said Lodge. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, Lodge said. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. We take our outdoor living as seriously as our indoor living with oversized lanais on every residence, said Lodge. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features, she noted. Dramatic views are available to every homeowner, no matter which floor they live on as the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the openair fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Prices at Kalea Bay begin at $1.3 million in Tower 1 and $1.4 million in Tower 2. In addition to the rooftop amenities, the residents of Kalea Bay will also enjoy the communitys clubhouse area, which is also under construction and due to be completed when the first residents move into their new homes. The clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Lodge. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, a poolside bistro, open-air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a sundries shop, and a state-of-theart fitness center. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Lodge. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. What better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico, said Lodge. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Adjacent to the clubhouse is the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, as well as pickleball courts, and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Lodge. The Club at Kalea Bay will be in excellent hands when it opens. Thats because Stephen G. Jones, CCM, has been hired as the Clubs General Manager. Jones is a Certified General Manager, one of only 1,200 in the country. Kalea Bays Inga Lodge and Lori Pheasant are also among the best in their industry. During the recent Sand Dollar Awards, sponsored by the Collier Building Industry Association, Lodge was named the Sales Manager of the Year and Pheasant took home the Sales Person of the Year award. The three furnished models at Kalea Bay, which are located in Tower 1, also received several prestigious Sand Dollar Awards in a multitude of categories including, two for Interior Design of the Year and two for Best Specialty feature. One of the models also won in the category Best Closet Design. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center.

B22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYSo, this is Mediterra?My first visit to the 2017 Community of the YearFor me, searching for a new home is like putting a giant jigsaw puzzle together. Sure, the house itself is key. It must have the space, the flow, the look, and the finishes that I prefer. But theres so much more to consider. Where is the home located? What is the community like? What is there to do? Are the neighbors energetic, fun, and committed to an active, healthy lifestyle like I am? Will I be able to live my life as I choose to live it? These questions matter to me. I had been looking for a new home for a while when a friend suggested I check out Mediterra on Livingston Parkway in North Naples. I had heard of Mediterra before and read about how it received a Sand Dollar Award as Community of the Year for the 11th time earlier this fall, but I had never been there. I decided to pay a visit. From the moment I arrived at the Sales Center, I could tell there was something different about the place. I was immediately intrigued. A Sales Executive, Lisa, fixed me a cup of coffee and invited me to relax in a comfortable presentation room. What happened next spoke volumes. Rather than quizzing me about square footage and price points like the sales people in other communities, she was more interested in whats important to me and the lifestyle I prefer to enjoy. We talked about that for a while, and then she offered to show me what Mediterra is about. The moment we drove through the entry gate, I was transfixed by the beauty of the place. Tall trees formed a canopy over a lushly landscaped streetscape that offered glimpses of glittering lakes and the fairways of one of Mediterras two golf courses. A roundabout anchored by an Italianate fountain provided a note of welcome. As we continued, the roadway gently curved and revealed the Piazza the heart of Mediterra. It was captivating a lake, a broad expanse of green space, and a grand Mediterranean-style clubhouse. We parked under the portico at the clubhouse entrance. Before going inside, Lisa took me for a walk through a plaza with a fountain and planters full of colorful flowers. We continued down a walkway lined with trees and more flowers. It was all stunning. The walkway led to Mediterras bocce ball courts where nearly 600 residents are registered to play and enjoy a beverage from the bocce bar. The courts offered an awesome view of the green space and the clubhouse beyond. We continued our walk. Everywhere I looked there was something different to do: a tennis facility with a pro shop and eight Har-Tru tennis courts, including a spectator court; the Sports Club that includes a fitness center outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment that offers fitness classes, wellness programs, personal trainers, aesthetic services, three spa rooms, and a swimming pool with a sunning deck; a golf pro shop with the PGA professionals who oversee the communitys two Tom Fazio-designed championship golf courses and an instructional program for golfers on every skill level; three new pickleball courts; and themed parks and water features connected by nearly eight miles of walking and biking trails. I kept thinking, So, this is Mediterra? When we entered the clubhouse, I was taken by the elegance of the formal dining room and the finely detailed place settings. We walked through the beautifully appointed grille room and past the Chefs Table where groups can enjoy a specially prepared dining experience complete with fine wine selections. Outdoor dining tables lined the verandah off the grille room. Then we arrived at the Tavern, an outdoor lounge adjacent to a terrace with tables for al fresco dining and a fire pit where I could envision club members enjoying a glass of wine on cool evenings during season. Lisa told me the club will be starting a 24,000 square feet expansion of the outdoor terrace and lounge area in 2018, as well as enhancements to 7,000 square feet of existing clubhouse space. Heres the thing: The entire initiative is being undertaken without a member assessment. When was the last time you heard about enhancements without an assessment??? Then Lisa asked if I would like to see Mediterras one-of-a-kind, residents-only beach club. I found that odd. Every other community I had visited either had no beach amenity or had cobbled together an arrangement where a limited number of residents could visit a beach facility owned by someone else. I decided to take a look. We took a quick drive to Little Hickory Island and, once again, I was amazed. The Mediterra Beach Club is 10,000 square feet with a full indoor dining room and outdoor dining overlooking the Gulf, a bar area, an elevated swimming pool with a sundeck, and valet service for beach chairs and umbrellas. Once again, I kept thinking, So, this is Mediterra? On the way back to the community, I asked Lisa about the new home choices in Mediterra. She told me London Bay Homes, the award-winning luxury homebuilder and developer of Mediterra, has more than 60 purchase opportunities available, including furnished models, unfurnished residences, and beautiful home sites. I told her Ill be back. Stay tuned Ill let you know what I find out! Visit the Mediterra Sales Center at 15836 Savona Way off Livingston Parkway two miles north of Immokalee Road.

I am beginning to see more of a year-round atmosphere in Naples. What improvements, innovations or changes do you foresee in your industry? When it comes to listings, more videos are being created and more technology is being implemented to help a sale. Buyers today are a lot more educated about the properties theyre interested in and the surrounding communities thanks to the tools they have at their disposal. Frankly, thats good news for Realtors who are detail oriented.Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business?I continue to learn on a daily basis and try to be the best possible self I can be every day. With that said, hard work, responsiveness and follow-ups have been the keys to my success. Those things sound obvious, but youd be surprised how many people dont make the effort.Within the context of your current marketing/promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?I like to think Im original. I strive to create trends and be the best I can be both within my company and among my peers in the Naples market. You have to think outside the box to come up with creative ways to market your listings and yourself. If a potential buyer likes you and trusts you, and you can build a relationship with them, they will do business with you. In addition, I try to reach a national/worldwide market through print, digital, and other various mediums. Whats your superpower? Consistency is key. I keep to a strict structure that Ive developed over the years and continue to adapt based on the times. I work tirelessly for my customers to ensure theyre happy with their investment. Ultimately, I sell the lifestyle beyond the home. And if you are serious about customer service and building relationships, you will see success. What will you base your success on for 2018?Im really excited about 2018, as I have recently moved to William Raveis Real Estate. Im very happy about the move and feel that Raveis will be a huge asset in marketing listings based on their global reach. With my work ethic, combined with the tools and resources theyve given me, I am very excited about whats to come. Its not really about the numbers for me, though Ive consistently sold significantly more real estate each and every year that Ive been in the business. While thats terrific, its really about the opportunity to keep building more relationships.Who is a mentor to you within your industry?I am very lucky to say that my father is a mentor to me. I have always admired his work ethic since I was a little kid. Hes the most detail-oriented person I know and I continue to learn from him on a daily basis. He also makes sure that I know its not a sprint, its a marathon. What wise words would you tell young people entering the work force today?Fail big. Do what you feel passionate about. And take chances. Dont be afraid to fail. Dont be afraid to go outside the box. Have goals. In fact, give yourself a goal every day. To achieve them you must apply discipline and consistency. After all, just because youre doing a lot more doesnt mean youre getting a lot more done.

Theyll be in walking distance of a downtown district that is already bustling with daily activity, a community pool and lake house that is ready to host their neighborhood and family gatherings, and a community garden that is already producing a wide variety of fresh herbs and vegetables served up daily at their local farm-totable restaurant. The completion of neighborhood amenities and opening of the initial downtown district before anyone moves in is just one of the multitude of ways the solar-powered town arising just northeast of Fort Myers sets itself apart. As builders work to complete homes for their first buyers in the Lake Timber neighborhood, developer Kitson & Partners is preparing for the November opening of a general store, ice cream shop and collaborative work space at Founders Square. Typically, developers start with homes and residents have to wait until a certain number of people move in before the promised amenities are constructed, said Syd Kitson, Chairman and CEO of Kitson & Partners. At Babcock Ranch, were delivering on the hometown experience and the lifestyle from day one. Slaters Goods & Provisions is a onestop shop for staple items and locallysourced produce, as well as farm-totable dining in a more casual setting and healthy, pre-made meals to take home. Named in honor of legendary Babcock cattleman Bo Slater, the general store also features a full production kitchen that will be taking over preparation of the healthy school lunches served to students at Babcock Neighborhood School. Tucked inside Slaters is another new business sure to be a favorite with students and adults alike. Square Scoops Ice Cream will be serving up 16 flavors from The Ice Cream Club, part of the fresh from Florida initiative. But Square Scoops is more than an ice cream parlor. Its also a coffee shop serving up craft coffees in a rural setting. Parents can snag their morning jolt of caffeine after dropping of their kids at school, while others grab a cup to go on their way to the business incubator located just upstairs. From private offices for rent by the month to daily passes for work space and conference rooms, The Hatchery provides creative and flexible work space where those who thrive on collaboration will find inspiration. November also marks the beginning for presales for homes in two new neighborhoods by Lennar and Pulte with homes starting in the $190s. Both builders will have offices at The Hatchery until their models are completed. Prospective residents who register online will have the first opportunity to lock in significant pre-construction incentives that will only be available through the end of the year.

Pending home sales steady, but U.S. activity declined NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSPending home sales were unchanged in September, but activity declined on an annual basis both nationally and in all major regions, according to the National Association of Realtors. The Pending Home Sales Index was at 106.0 in September, its lowest since January 2015. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said the quest to buy a home this fall continues to be challenging for many home shoppers. Demand exceeds supply in most markets, which is keeping price growth high and essentially eliminating any savings buyers would realize from the decline in mortgage rates from earlier this year, he said. Hurricane Irmas direct hit on Florida weighed on activity in the South, but similar to how Houston has rebounded after Hurricane Harvey, Floridas strong job and population growth should guide sales back to their pre-storm pace fairly quickly, Mr. Yun said. Supply constraints continue to squeeze prospective buyers the most at the lower end of the market, he added.

Mason Alley Publishing. 355 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; Kindle e-book, $4.99. Robert Lanes fifth Jake Travis Novel has plenty of the authors familiar mix of grit and literary style plus a more personal premise than the earlier titles. When a man who was the primary suspect in his missing sisters disappearance is found dead on the beach near Jakes home, the floodgates of emotions long held in check open and threaten to overwhelm him. Why now, 30 years after Brittanys abduction, has this man Hawkins been left to be discovered? Is the confession he wrote just before his body washed ashore genuine or coerced? Jake feels latter is likely and believes the identifying DNA evidence has been manipulated. The discovery of the corpse raises hundreds of questions, but three are central: What happened to Jakes slightly older sister, whom Jake last saw when she was 7 years old? Is there any chance that she is alive? And was Jake in any way responsible for leaving her vulnerable? Riddled with longsuppressed despair and guilt, Jake commits himself to find the answers and mete out personal justice to whoever is responsible for his sisters long-ago disappearance and possibly her death. All of his investigative and martial skills, along with those of his loyal friends and the understanding of his devoted girlfriend, are called on to sustain him in this time of raging personal need. Before long, Jake discovers that people in private and governmental corridors of power are determined to thwart his quest. The truth about what happened to Brittany includes secrets they need to keep hidden. Following up on the long-terminated official investigation of her disappearance does not get Jake far, but it does bring the forces arrayed against him to attention. Searching for a starting point to pursue the decades-old crime, Jake retraces events at the Southwest Florida Vanderbilt Reef Motel, where he and his family were vacationing when Brittany disappeared. His efforts lead to three linked figures who would have been young men spending time in the area back then. Well-connected attorney Bernard Carlsberg is one of them. Carlsberg has a connection to a shady Russian wheelerdealer named Peter Omarov. And Omarov has connections to U.S. government agents who protect him because he is a valuable source: a conduit to whats going on in Russia and Ukraine. The third man, David LeClair, is clearly a key but Jake learns that LeClair has been dead for almost as long as Brittany has been missing. Indeed, there is a much wider net of characters caught up in each others lives and in the puzzle that Jake is determined to solve. Alex Brackett is one of the most interesting. There are also several colorful and important female characters from who Jake draws clues and compassion. The labyrinthian unfolding of the plot will keep most readers hooked, but a few might get somewhat antsy as the twists and turns pile up and the demands on their memory increase. Mr. Lane plays the Russian connection card in ways that playfully echo contemporary speculations about a certain U. S. president. And as in his earlier novels, he draws readers into the sensory character and abundant charms of Floridas Gulf Coast. Jake is so fully at home there, so interactive with his beloved environment, that were he not such an undercover kind of guy he might merit a seat on a tourism bureau. Other settings, such as Chicago, are also put to good use. Once again, Jakes beloved Kathleen plays a major role, not only as romantic partner and confidante, but also as a soldier in Jakes scheme to bamboozle and draw out his adversaries. His buddies Morgan and Garrett are on hand, as ever, to do his bidding and lend their own special insights and talents to the troubling matters at hand. What else? This heart-racing thriller is just dripping with style. Award-winning novelist Robert Lane, like his protagonist, hangs out in Southwest Florida. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. s r a l e d of d in bilt w he f a m tio n tan y Hi s thr e w h be e sp e t he We at t C a o f ha t o si de P A c U a tecthimbecau o J s I t w r philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com LANE

Many of those songs became Top 10 hits for the artists. In a program that begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Hilton Naples, Mr. Dorff will perform many of his best-known songs and share the stories behind them.

Admission includes lunch and a copy of the book. 7 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Hilton Naples: Meet actress Alexandra Silber, the author of After Anatevka A Novel Inspired by Fiddler on the Roof.

COLLECTORS CORNER The patina of time lends layers of character scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Its officially the start of antiques season in South Florida, and Im excited. You should be, too, and heres why: Its history were seeing. We dont want to dwell on the past, but theres so much to learn from it. Theres nothing more satisfying to me than seeing the well-worn arm of a much-loved chair or a piece of silver that has the warm patina of use and polishing. Those marks bring character to a piece, often lending it a meaning it might not have otherwise. But that doesnt mean one has to dwell in a museum. And it doesnt mean that one needs to have an attic filled with family treasures. Rather, it means looking at something and recognizing the labor that went into it the blade marks on a table that has hand-turned legs, the thumband fingerprints you may see in old roof and decorative tiles, the dainty brushstrokes on a hand-painted piece of porcelain or glass. Thats art, craft and history, all rolled into one. Scott Diament, president and CEO of Palm Beach Show Group, which produces tony antiques shows across the nation and in West Palm Beach and Naples noted that during a recent interview. Something like the Martin-Baker ejection chair might have cost millions of dollars to design, but today you can put that in your office. Its fascinating that so much money was spent to have these objects and items that had a function, but now you can buy them as an object of 20th-century design. Perhaps thats why elements of industrial design remain popular with collectors and decorators alike they have that bit of history that lends a layer of complexity. I like to look at my own collecting as sifting the layers. I find something, display and then move it on when something more interesting comes along. You have to search the layers in your quest for treasure. Ill repeat my advice from a few weeks ago: Always expect the unexpected. Dont be afraid to dig around the fabulous may be buried in the mundane. Always retrace your steps. You never know what you missed on your first pass. I typically score my best finds on the second pass. And let me add to that: Be creative in how you use things. That Victorian chest may be perfect as an end table, and those old saws may make a great graphic statement as wall art. Finally, have fun! Bought: Good will R etail & Donation Center, 91 S. Lee St., LaBelle; 863-6758585. Paid: $1. The Skinny: You never know when or where you will find treasure. And thats why I always stop at the LaBelle Goodwill as I make my way across the state. Id sworn off buying individual plates without mates I dont need any more odd sets. But you almost never see enameled pieces like this dinner plate made in Ohio by Heisey between 1909 and 1935. The flowers still glow, despite being nearly a century old. And being Heisey, the plate sparkles and catches the light in each nook and groove. I love that Heisey took the time to polish the bottoms of its plates, so even after all these years, the quality shines through. THE FIND:A hand-decorated 10-inch Heisey Narrow Flute plateSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Heisey dinner-size plate dates from between 1909 and 1935. Its enameled decoration was hand applied.

H00616 8/16 ARTS COMMENTARYThe Naples Players turn back the clock in Maple & VineAn acquaintance of mine bemoans that she was born too late. A child of the 0s, she wishes she had lived in the 1950s instead. It was a much hipper time, she feels. She loves the clothing, the music, the cars, the look. I suspect she almost sees the era as an extended episode of Happy Days. What she doesnt take into consideration is how repressive things were back then, the blatant racism and sexism, the taking for granted that women and people of color werent equal and should know their place. Contraceptive options were limited. Homosexuality was considered both a mental illness and a crime. We were in a cold war with Russia, and schoolchildren practiced hiding under their desks in case of an atomic attack. (As if that would help.) I thought of my friend the other night when I saw The Naples Players production of Maple & Vine. This curious, unusual play introduces us to Katha (Tina Moroni) and her husband Ryu (Dan Bacalzo), a modern day couple living in New York City. She has a high-pressure job in publishing, and hes a plastic surgeon. Theyre grieving Kathas recent miscarriage, and their marriage is suffering the after-effects. And then Katha meets a man in a gray flannel suit who looks as if hes just been transported from the 1950s. Dean (Jesse Hughes) wears pants with cuffs, and a crisp triangle of white peeks out of the pocket of his double-breasted suit jacket. No backpack or man purse for him: Hes lugging a leather briefcase. And instead of a baseball cap, he sports a hat a 1950s one that goes with his suit, not the kind hipsters wear today to try to look cool. The two get to talking, and Katha discovers Dean and his wife are 1950s reenactors. Only they dont do it for just occasional weekends, like Civil War reenactors. They belong to a group called the Society of Dynamic Obsolescence and live full-time in a gated community where everyone lives as if it s 1955. There are no cell phones, no cable, no Internet, no laptops. Everyone has to live, speak and comport themselves at all times as if they were living in the mid-50s. (An accidental slip of the tongue or a reference to something modern is considered a disruption.) Katha sees the Society of Dynamic Obsolescence as the answer to all her problems, a safe haven. Ryu isnt so sure. He suspects it might be a cult, but eventually goes along with his wifes desires. This change of heart struck me as a little too sudden. I found it hard to believe any doctor would leave his successful practice to work in a factory assembling boxes. But then again, what person, overwhelmed with the pressures of work, family, marriage and life in general, hasnt at some point longed for a simpler life and a slower pace? The cost of going back to simpler times is more than Katha and Ryu expect, however. Is it more than theyre willing to pay? Act II is full of surprises, though truthfully, some should be expected. After all, our history is full of examples of what happens, on small or large scales, when people give up critical thinking and abdicate personal responsibility, allowing others to dictate what happens to them. The Society of Dynamic Obsolescence reminded me of a quote in a WWII thriller Im currently reading: Beware the man who tells you he knows whats best for you; he usually starts by stealing your rights. The scenes between Katha and Ryu, and Kathas scenes at work with employees in Act I, are, unfortunately, some of the weaker moments in this intriguing play. I wish director Bryce Alexander had worked to strengthen those more. The stage comes alive whenever Mr. Hughes and Jessica Walck, who plays his wife, Ellen, are onstage. A dutiful wife, she stares at her husband with sheer adoration. Ms. Walck plays the role with perfection, chirpy and perpetually cheery. Mr. Hughes character is a take-charge kind of guy, a bantam rooster who seems to have something to prove or to hide. Ms. Moronis character evolves over the course of the play, transforming into another woman than the one we first meet. We see her grow in confidence, though she initially struggles to adjust to her 1950s life. Mr. Bacalzos role is perhaps the most difficult, as we have to believe a doctor would not only give up his profession for manual labor in a factory but also would willingly return to an era where racism is blatant and ethnic jokes socially acceptable. James Duggan plays two roles: Omar, an arch, flamboyant gay who works in publishing with Katha, and Roger, a stoic, racist factory supervisor in the 1950s world. As the former, he giggles and gossips with Jenna (Ms. Walcks second role in the play), a ditzy coworker who seems more obsessed with her cell phone and taking selfies; as the latter, hes brooding and somewhat intimidating and unpredictable. (And Mr. Alexander provides a nice touch: When Roger and Ryu have a battle of wills and words, Roger slams his much-larger lunchbox down on the table next to Ryus, as if to show hes bigger and superior. Its a small moment, but clever.) The outfits, by costume designer Jack Cole, are superlative: suits and hats and s ties for the men; pumps and pearls, pillbox hats and white gloves for the women. Ellen, in particular, looks as if shes just stepped out of the pages of a mid-century issue of Vogue. And for both actresses, there are numerous costume changes. As the playwright Jordan Harrison advises in his production notes in his script: I can imagine a production where costumes and wigs do nearly all the work in transporting us to the 1950s. And they do. They are simply stunning. And they do transport us directly to that era. Chase Lilienthals set design assists, especially Katha and Ryus new home on Maple and Vine, with teal, tufted love seat with mid-century modern lines and a teak, multi-leveled wall unit with asymmetrical shelving. Theres a clever scene where Katha is reading Peyton Place a nice nod to the secrets and skeletons in closets that can exist in small towns. But the book was published in 1956, which makes it a disruption if theyre supposed to be living in 1955. But thats just a quibble. Maple & Vine is innovative and thought provoking, an interesting concept well executed. Ive never seen a play quite like it.

On another note: A personal relationship might be moving to a higher level. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A sudden change of heart by a colleague might create some momentary uncertainty. But stay with your original decision and, if necessary, defend it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Rely on a combination of your sharp instincts along with some really intense information gathering to help you make a possibly life-changing decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Instead of worrying if that new person in your life will stay or leave, spend all that energy on strengthening your relationship so it becomes walk-out resistant. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A sudden financial dry spell could reduce your cash flow almost to a trickle. But by conserving more and spending less, youll get through the crunch in good shape. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your work requires increased effort during the next few days. But it all will pay off down the line. Things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and/or friends.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your attempt at mediating disputes might meet some opposition at first. But once youre shown to be fair and impartial, resistance soon gives way to cooperation.

Most players dont encounter this difficulty because, in the groups in which they play, a spade bid shows spades, diamonds means diamonds, and so on. However, when you play in tournaments, artificial bids are fairly common. How much they gain in the long run is questionable. Here is a case where an artificial bid was successful, but for a peculiar reason. The deal was played in a match between Great Britain and Italy in 1954. Nothing much happened at the first table, where Terence Reese and Boris Schapiro got to four spades as shown. Reese made six instead of five as the result of a defensive error. It was at the second table that the fireworks occurred. There, Michele Giovine and Mario Franco held the North-South cards for Italy. They were playing the highly artificial Marmic system. Giovine opened the South hand with one diamond, a strong bid that had nothing to do with diamonds. Franco responded with one spade, which had nothing to do with spades. It showed a king and some additional values. Eventually, Franco and Giovine arrived at six spades. Adam Meredith (West) led the jack of spades and thereby handed declarer the contract. Declarer won with the queen, cashed the A-K of hearts and ruffed a heart, establishing dummys two remaining hearts. He then crossed to the ten of spades and discarded two losers on the established hearts to make the slam. It was an unfortunate lead, all right, but it was doubly unfortunate because Meredith had led out of turn. Due to the artificial one-spade bid, the actual declarer was North, so East should have led. As it was, North accepted Merediths lead out of turn, which was his privilege, and so made the slam.

C16 WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Breathe (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander) Paralyzed in his prime from polio, Robin (Garfield) finds new meaning in his life thanks to his wife (Foy) and other loved ones. Garfield and Foy are strong as the leads, and its ultimately a hopeful story thats not as depressing as it looks. Rated PG-13. Happy Death Day 1/2(Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine) Sorority girl Tree (Rothe) is murdered, then relives the day until she can find the killer. Its illogical and lame, with few original ideas and plenty of logical gaps. Rated PG-13.Victoria & Abdul (Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Michael Gambon) The friendship between Queen Victoria (Dench) and an Indian servant (Fazal) late in her life is chronicled in director Stephen Frears latest. Its a bit scattered in terms of narrative tone, but overall the touching, symbiotic friendship is a welcome sight to see. Rated PG-13.American Made (Tom Cruise, Domhnall Gleeson, Sarah Wright) Airline pilot Barry Seal (Cruise) is recruited by the CIA to take pictures over Central America, then becomes involved in drug and gun smuggling. Its a captivating story that will keep you rooting for the anti-hero, but it doesnt have the visual panache this kind of film should feature. Rated R.Only The Brave (Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges) Firefighters in Arizona bond and battle wildfires in this dramatic true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Its not perfect, but its moving enough to do the real people justice. Rated PG-13.Rebel in the Rye (Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson) Author J.D. Salinger (Hoult) struggles to be a writer, and later struggles with success, in this uneven biopic. Its a conventional movie for perhaps the most unconventional artist of our time; theres little doubt the real Salinger (who died in 2010) would hate it. Rated PG-13.Stronger (Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson) After losing his legs from just above the knee in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) adapts to a new lifestyle with his girlfriend (Maslany), mother (Richardson) and friends helping him. Its an inspiring true story, and Gyllenhaals performance is Oscar-worthy. Rated R.Patti Cakes 1/2(Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Cathy Moriarty) Patti (Macdonald), an overweight white girl in New Jersey, dreams of becoming a rap star. Macdonald makes a splash in what could be a breakout performance, but the movie is too predictable to be truly memorable. Rated R.

NoGeorge Clooney, Matt Damon, Julianne Moore. All Oscar winners, all Hollywood royalty and all part of the absolute misfire that is Suburbicon, a mistake of a movie that will be a stain on their careers. How could three people who are so good at what they do veer so far off track? Suburbicon is the name of a small town circa 1959. On the surface the Lodge family represents 1950s Americana as history likes to remember it: Mom Rose (Moore) stays home, son Nicky (Noah Jupe) goes to school, dad Gardner (Damon) works a corporate job. The community is safe and self-contained, seemingly perfect for raising a child. Yes, things couldnt be better for the Lodges, save for the fact that Rose was in a car accident and is now bound to a wheelchair. Regardless, her twin sister Maggie (Moore again) helps out, so all is happy on the home front. Then the unthinkable happens: A home invasion leaves Rose dead. Nothing like this ever happens here, the local ladies say. But it did happen, and the ugliness of both the town and the Gardner family is exposed. There are cover-ups, betrayals, murders and an insurance investigator (Oscar Isaac) who smells something fishy. All of this is as predictable as it comes, right down to Gardner and Maggies real plans and their subsequent incompetence. Meanwhile, the subplot features the Myers family, newcomers to the neighborhood who are African-American, and unwanted. Riots break out in front of their home, and at one point a Confederate flag is left on their window. This blatant racism ultimately has no bearing on the main story, so you have to wonder why its included at all. If Clooney, who directed and co-wrote the script, is providing commentary on civil rights or racism, the message doesnt come through. The film is also so ignorant that it forgets to have a good guy, a main character who fights for a better world. Without a hero, viewers dont get emotionally involved, and they leave the theater either angry at the films incompetence or (worse) indifferent to everything theyve just seen. The only decent human beings in Suburbicon are Nicky, whos an innocent child incapable of protecting himself, and a couple of minor supporting characters, including Nickys Uncle Mitch (Gary Basaraba). Thats not enough. One suspects Clooney and co-writers Grant Heslov and Joel and Ethan Coen (yes, the Coen Bros., who created the story then passed it to Clooney and Heslov for the screenplay) wanted to show the shadiness that could lie behind the shiny veneer of an idyllic s family. Sadly, that is completely lost. Instead Suburbicon has a mostly humorless, light tone and a color palette that belies the darker story elements. And the social commentary just doesnt work on any level. Clooney, Damon and Moore will be better again, no doubt. But Suburbicon is one entry in their canons that you can skip. w a l e o t dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> A few scenes starring Josh Brolin as a baseball coach were cut from Suburbicon after a test screening.Did you know? thirdstreetsouth.com 239.434.6533 Discover a Dozen Glorious Restaurants and CafesOver 50 Unique and Sophisticated Shops and GalleriesGracious Strolls amidst Abundant Flowers, Fountains and Courtyards!Gather Your Best Friends and Come to the Most Charm Filled Neighborhood of All

C20 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYing too fast, she says. They said our budget was increasing dramatically from year to year. The community very much didnt want us to go, Mr. Cacioppo adds. When the board announced its decision, they had all these town hall meetings and created a group to support us, called Act Now, which had bumper stickers and b uttons. Our theater was on budget, and it was the biggest subscription year in its history, and its biggest donations. That last season, we were doing Shakespeare and Moliere. The Cacioppos, determined to keep creating theater, scrambled to find a new space. They were offered the historic Arcade Theatre in downtown Fort Myers, a space previous tenants had not had much success with. All the staff, all their artists and six of the board members came with them. And so did their audience. Thats when I learned that a theater is people, not a building, says Mr. Cacioppo. It was great for Fort Myers, because downtown Fort Myers was dead. All these people whod been coming from Fort Myers and Cape Coral to Sanibel (to see theater) were delighted they didnt have to drive over the causeway to see great theater. The Cacioppos were inspired by the movie, Field of Dreams If you build it, they will come. Were filling a need that the community wanted, Mr. Cacioppo says. They opened Florida Repertory Theatre on Nov. 6, 1998, with Noises Off, a fun farce about a group of actors whose personal problems bleed over onto their stage performances, turning them into chaos. Everyone wanted to help us, says Mr. Cacioppo. When we lost the theater, all our friends felt bad for us. Our donors, everyone circled the wagons around us, wanted to help us. Our set designer, Richard Crowell, designed the set of Noises Off for free. He wanted us to be successful. And they have been, growing from a staff of 19 that first year to the present staff of 55. They scored a coup in their 20022003 season, presenting Steve Martins loopy adaptation of The Underpants, the first theater in the country to do so after the shows Off-Broadway run. Bari Newport, then associate director, bought two pairs of frilly ladies panties and painted on the butt of both, We want The Underpants. Florida Rep. They wrapped them in tissue paper and elaborately wrapped fancy boxes. One was sent to Steve Martin in Los Angeles, the other to his agent. We got a phone call, says Mr. Cacioppo, and they said theyd never laughed so hard in their life, and we would be the first theater in the U.S. to produce The Underpants after Broadway. In January 2009, Terry Teachout, theater critic for The Wall Street Journal, attended a performance of Dancing at Lughnasa, Brian Friels memory play set in Ireland. His Jan. 16 review praised the performance, ending with this paragraph: I confess to not having expected to run across so stirring a production of Dancing at Lughnasa a stones throw from the Gulf of Mexico. Yet that is what Florida Rep has given us, and anyone unlucky enough not to have seen this modern masterpiece should make haste to Fort Myers, where the weather is warm and the theater fine. It was a terrific performance, says Mr. Cacioppo, but every night at intermission about 20 people left. I could see from my window, about 10 cars would leave from the parking lot. Its a very sad play, and the narrator (played by) Chris Clavelli, tells us that all these sisters are going to die these tough deaths in the future. And everyone has these thick, Irish accents, and for people with hear-REPFrom page 1 CHIP HOFFMAN / FLORIDA REPERTORY THEATRERachel Burttram, Michelle Damato and Carrie Lund perform in Florida Repertory Theatres production of Dancing at Lughnasa in January 2009.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C21SEE REP, C22 ing aids, its doubly hard. Then, Terry Teachouts review came out 10 days into it. He wrote about the ensemble, and said it seems like the cast was cut from the same branch The irony is, no one ever left again at intermission. A national paper like The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times can make or break a show. His review would bring people in from all over the state to Florida Rep and also gave us a credibility in the theater world, because hes read nationally. Not only did his review have a positive impact on attendance, but on donations too. The bankers and dentists read The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Cacioppo says. Mr. Teachout was so impressed with what he saw, hes returned every year since, reviewing a show every winter. In his review of The House of Blue Leaves in January this year, he called Florida Rep one of Americas top regional companies. I dont keep coming back to review a regional company year after year unless they have something really special to offer, Mr. Teachout wrote in an email. The fact is that everything about Florida Rep is special the repertory they perform, the strong ensemble feel of the acting, the smart choices of the directors and designers. Thats why theyre on my short list of Americas top regional companies. Seeing Florida Rep is always a highlight of my season. Later in 2009, the theater turned its rehearsal space into a black box studio theater and began offering one-person shows. The Santaland Diaries, about a man who gets a job as an elf at Macys for Christmas, opened the space. Jason Parrish starred. The play was so successful, it was revived every December for five more years. In 2010, the theater made an artisAs a critic, I see a lot of performances sometimes as many as 60 in a year. With the exception of the first few years, Ive seen almost everything the Florida Repertory Theatre has staged. And with each year, Ive grown more and more impressed. Season after season, it continues to raise the bar, artistically. When people ask me where they should go see good theater, I usually recommend Florida Rep, saying that it doesnt matter whats playing, they pretty much cant go wrong. Many performances stand out for me the two Delany sisters, daughters of a former slave, relaying their history in Having Our Say. The hilarity of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and the satisfying silliness of Shear Madness. The way Charles Nelson Reilly was both funny and heartbreaking in his one-man show, The Life of Reilly. Miche Braden belting out the blues as the title character in The Devils Music: The Life and Times of Bessie Smith. The musicians banter in Side Man. Someone cursing creatively in sign language in Tribes. A classical musician smashing a violin in pieces in Opus. The two detectives in The 39 Steps wrapping white towels around their suits to enter a sauna and a man wriggling through a picture frame to imitate a man escaping through a window. The way The Guys, in which an editor helps a New York Fire Department captain write eulogies for his men who have died at the World Trade Center, brought both healing and tears after 9/11. All of them could make this list. Its indescribable when everything comes together in a show: the actors, the directing, the script, the set, the costumes. Its theater magic. Its entertaining, its moving, its funny, its transformative. And it happens with regularity at Florida Rep. Heres list of shows over the past 20 years that, as well as the ones already mentioned, still stand out for me. This bakers dozen could easily have been twice as long. Shirley Valentine (2008-2009 season)I returned a couple of times to see this one-woman show starring Lisa Morgan, whose character leaves her stick-inthe-mud husband in England and starts a new life for herself in Greece, where she rediscovers and re-invents herself. This show not only struck a chord with me but with audiences; it was extended by popular demand. August: Osage County (2010-2011 season)A wildly dysfunctional family reunites at their childhood home when their father goes missing. Sara Morsey starred as the mother whos addicted to booze and pills and wields truth like a weapon. It played with your emotions: you were horrified yet you laughed, then you were horrified youd laughed. Around the World in 80 Days (2014-2015 season)Based on Jules Vernes classic novel, this clever play celebrates theaters ability to transport you anywhere, with creative use of props and sound effects. Filled with wit, this five-person ensemble transported you from London to Bombay to Hong Kong to New York. Doubt (2007-2008 season)This short, one-act play by John Patrick Shanley packs a punch. A mother superior at a Catholic school suspects a priest of molesting a young boy. Does she know for sure, or is she just on a witch hunt, spurred by her dislike of the priests modern ways (and possible closet homosexuality)? The action had your emotions and sympathies seesawing throughout and provided fodder for great conversation and debate postcurtain. Outside Mullingar (2017-2018 season)Outside Mullingar is another John Patrick Shanley play, about death, mortality and the possibility of love, no matter how old or how unusual you are. It deals with the inevitable the death of our parents, our own encroaching deaths yet provides hope and laughter. It is as close to being a perfect play as you can get. The Santaland Diaries (2009-2010 season, plus)This one-man show starring Jason Parrish, who becomes an elf at Macys for Christmas, opened Florida Reps Studio Theatre, then returned for five more seasons. It became a cult favorite, an enjoyable way to celebrate the holidays in a way that wasnt saccharine or overly sentimental. (Mr. Parrish described the play to me in an interview as a deviant little thing.) The Best of Enemies (2016-2017 season)Based on real people, The Best of Enemies tells the story of an African-American civil rights activist and the head of a local KKK who become friends. Gritty and incredibly moving, it was a healing balm to watch, opening right after our most recent presidential election. The Underpants (2002-2003 season)Florida Rep was the first theater in the country to gain rights to Steve Martins loopy adaptation of The Underpants, after it played Off-Broadway in New York. Based on Carl Sternheims 1910 German farce, it tells the story of a German bureaucrat whose wifes underpants fall to her ankles while theyre watching a parade for the king. Wonderfully absurd and off-kilter, it also included the late Carol A. Provonsha as a nosey upstairs neighbor who made her entrance in lingerie: a deep magenta bustier and blue satin pants. Dancing at Lughnasa (2008-2009 season)A memory play set in Ireland, this sad, mournful play displayed some of the best ensemble work done at Florida Rep. Poignant and moving, it showed the grimness of life but also contained moments of great joy and hope and humor as well, when one sister smears flour on her face, and with a wild yell, starts dancing. Indian Blood (2008-2009 season)Call me sentimental, but I loved this AR Gurney play about a family at Christmastime. Set in 1946, a boy is suspended from high school for drawing a lewd picture. He blames it on his Seneca blood, believing the family legend that he has Indian blood. I loved it for its tender family moments and gentle humor. Its a Wonderful Life Radio Show (2011-2012 season)This delightful play-within-a-play had a cast of radio actors putting on a production of Frank Capras Its a Wonderful Life over the airwaves in the 1940s. It included Mark Chambers as a crotchety sound-effects man, who, among other things, squeezed a box of cornstarch to create the sound of someone walking through the snow. Twelve Angry Men (2015-2016 season)Its a challenge to stage a play with a dozen actors onstage all at the same time. But this riveting drama kept my attention from beginning to end, as this disparate group of jurors meet to determine the fate of a 16-year-old. Not only was Twelve Angry Men gripping and the acting superb, but the staging was remarkable, without one static or stilted moment. The Seafarer (2015-2016 season)A group of friends in Ireland play poker with a stranger on Christmas Eve, growing drunker with each passing hand. None of them realize the stranger is actually the devil, playing for one of their souls. A creatively written play about the power of redemption and grace, it gave me chills and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up when Satan revealed his true identity.

C22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYtic leap forward by staging August: Osage County on its mainstage, which Mr. Cacioppo calls perhaps my favorite production. It was the first time the theater had staged such a dramatic play about a dysfunctional family falling apart. In it, the matriarch of the family battles with alcohol and is addicted to pills, and verbally abuses her adult children. It was incredibly well-received and our biggest hit, as far as a drama, says associate producer and ensemble member Jason Parrish. To that point, it was our most popular drama. Almost 6,400 people saw August: Osage County. The show sold out, and just prior to its last performance, a man stood in the lobby holding a sign that read: I need two tickets. It was the first time we did a big drama in the big theater that became a wild success, says Mr. Cacioppo. In 2012 the studio space was renovated, with a center column that had blocked sightlines removed and new lighting added. Seating increased from 80 seats to 120. Camping With Henry and Tom opened the new ArtStage Studio Theatre. ArtStage is more popular than our main stage now, says Mr. Cacioppo. Im a huge fan of Florida Rep, says Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson. I remember well when they arrived 20 years ago, and the excitement that they had found downtown Fort Myers worthy of their consideration, and indeed had ultimately chosen to relocate in downtown. They have been an economic driver and an entertainment driver. Ive never been disappointed when Ive attended, and I love going there. Id be remiss not to reference Robert and his lovely wife Carrie, because they have poured their heart and soul into this during their time in Southwest Florida. I dont think you could pry them away from Fort Myers in any way, shape or form. They love it, and they demonstrate that they love it in that they give back to the community, not just the theater, but they train young students in our city and beyond to have an interest in theater. And, he adds, their presence has aided in the revival of downtown Fort Myers. Things bubble up around them because of them, Mayor Henderson says. New restaurants, new residential quarters. And I think theres more to come, for sure. The Cacioppos have plans. We look at the communitys need and wants, says Ms. Cacioppo. They tell us what to do. We should fill a void. If theres something thats not there, we will discover it and do it for our audiences. Sometimes they might not even know what it is, their need. One thing they havent accomplished yet with Florida Rep is their world classic initiative. They want to produce a classic play every year, such as Romeo and Juliet or Lysistrata or Pygmalion. George Bernard Shaw, Greek plays, or even a great American classic like Grapes of Wrath, says Mr. Cacioppo, something that the high school students have to read. Wed bus them in so they can see a fully realized production with lights and sets and costumes and professional actors in the theater. Thats the last cog in the wheel for us, thats the last dream. Both were influenced by the arts as children Mr. Cacioppo through programs Joseph Papp produced for New York City school children, and Ms. Cacioppo through the arts education her mother and her family promoted upstate in Buffalo, N.Y. Were both in agreement, we want Florida Rep to be promoting our 50th anniversary, he says. We wont be here. But we continue to have no debt, and build an endowment. I want to build a $10 million, $15 million endowment. They have $3.5 million pledged right now. The young people acting in their theater camp or seeing a childrens show now, at 14, will be 44 thirty years from now, he notes. They may be in charge of a corporation. They may be a subscriber or a donor, he says. And if the Cacioppos have their way, theyll be die-hard theater lovers.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C23Florida Repertory Theater has the best-looking and most intelligent audiences. And whenever I attend, Im always their favorite audience. How do I know that? Producing artistic director and founder Robert Cacioppo announces it from the stage. Its a Florida Rep tradition, and audiences have come to expect it. At the end of every opening speech prior to the show, Mr. Cacioppo, with unbridled enthusiasm, always roars, And the (fill in the day of the week) audience is our favorite audience! You know why? Youre the best-looking, and the most intelligent! And I swear, I always say that! And he does. I cant for sure tell you when I started that, but I think it was 10 years ago, he says. I certainly didnt do it in the beginning. Every year, he tries to think of something new and clever to say. Recently, hes been claiming the venue has received a grant for new seats ejector seats that are triggered by a cell phone going off. Last season he added, Lifes too short for all work and no plays. People good-naturedly moan at the pun. But the best-looking and most intelligent spiel has stuck. It was influenced by a combination of things, he says. He remembers, as a little boy, watching Jackie Gleasons variety show on TV, broadcast live from Miami. The comedian would come out and say The Miami (Beach) audiences are the greatest audiences (in the world), or something to that effect, Mr. Cacioppo says. I have a memory of that. And then, he says, he and his wife, Carrie Lund Cacioppo, are big fans of Garrison Keillor, whod talk about Lake Woebegone, where all the women are strong, all the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average. Instead of condescending to them, hes appealing to them. And thats how I came up with The Tuesday night audiences are our favorite audiences Its a cross between Jackie Gleason, Garrison Keillor and Cacioppo. He did it for one season, then stopped. But audience members would come up to him and complain, saying, What, were not the best looking? And I realized I was stuck with it, he says. I have to say this to the day that I die now. They told me they liked it and were disappointed I wasnt doing it. People talk about it, he says, and tell friends, You gotta come, he comes running out, and then he tells you were the best looking! People tell other people at cocktail parties that my opening announcement is almost worth the price of admission, which is ridiculous, he says. But it obviously became a thing, something that people talked about and expected when they attended Florida Rep. So, Mr. Cacioppo has kept it in his pre-curtain talk. And last season, the venue came out with baseball caps, T-shirts and bumper stickers that said, Best-looking and most intelligent. The caps, black with white lettering, sold out. Rarely a day goes by when a stranger on the street or at Costco or anywhere will come up to him and proclaim, Im the best-looking and most intelligent. Mr. Cacioppo recalls almost getting into a fight at the carwash. He kept keying in the code to enter the carwash, but for some reason, the machine wasnt accepting it. And the man in the car behind him kept honking and honking and honking. Frustrated and angry, Mr. Cacioppo got out of his car to exchange words, or even blows. And the guy goes, Hey, Im the bestlooking and most intelligent! And it totally diffused the fight. I will definitely be saying it forever now. I have to. The best-looking and most intelligent audiencesBY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com Florida Repertory Theatre highlights over the 20 seasons:>> The Florida Repertory Theatre opens with Noises Off Nov. 6, 1998, in the historic Arcade Theatre, originally built in 1915 for vaudeville acts. >> Florida Rep is one of the rst regional theaters to stage Wit, about a woman ghting cancer, and in doing so, takes an artistic leap forward. >> Wall Street Journal theater critic Terry Teachout comes to see Dancing at Lughnasa and gives it a glowing review on Jan. 16, 2009, writing, I confess to not having expected to run across so stirring a production a stones throw from the Gulf of Mexico. He then continues to attend and review a show every year afterwards and calls Florida Rep one of Americas top regional companies. >> Florida Repertory Studio Theatre opens in former rehearsal space. Jason Parrish stars in one-man show, The Santaland Diaries, in December 2009, about a man who gets a job as an elf at Macys for the holidays. The show returns for ve more years, becoming, for a while, an untraditional Christmas tradition. >> The renovated Florida Rep Studio Theatre reopens as the ArtStage Studio Theatre on Nov. 2, 2012.

But the ultimate perk of Florida winter is being able to dine outside. In January. With little more than a sweater to ward off a chill. Its why even restaurants that arent on the water figure out a way to cluster some table outside. In places like Old Naples, downtown Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, sidewalk tables afford great spot from which to people watch while dining. At the beaches, there are spectacular water views, often with sunset vistas as a bonus. And just in case the air gets a bit brisk, most establishments have outdoor heaters to keep you toasty. That said, its always a good idea to take a sweater with you. Here are four of my favorite spots for dining al fresco. NaplesWhen it comes to a restaurant in which the view and the food are both memorable, M Waterfront Grille has few peers. This Naples favorite offers a stunning view of Venetian Bay along with excellent food and exceptional service. And as if thats not enough, the wine list is exemplary as well. The management describes the cuisine as cuttingedge continental a term coined by former executive chef Brian Roland and still used by current chef John Berry. What that means is food that isnt fussy but is fresh and carefully composed. The kitchen makes its own butter and you may be tempted to make a meal of the bread as a result. Fresh fish selections and steaks are expertly executed but vegetables get their due as well. Try to save some room for dessert as these are all house-made and superb as well.

Their menu reflects a union of diverse influences, blending cuisines, flavors and techniques in uncommon ways. An appetizer of escargot, for instance, is inspired by Philippine adobo, so the snails are bathed in coconut milk seasoned with vinegar and soy sauce with hints of kaffir lime. The culinary commingling continues with Hawaiian teabraised pork tucked into Mexican quesadillas and fried whole snapper over soba. The pommes frites are a must, whether or not you order them laced with truffle oil. A flat-iron steak crusted with house-smoked blue cheese comes with a delicious balsamic tomato sauce. Save room house-made desserts of Okinawa sweet potato pie or passion fruit cheesecake. Beer and wine. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 Catch 41 Bar n Grill, Ramada Inn, 1100 Tamiami Trail, Naples; 263-6046The Ramada has a winner in its latest restaurant, run by talented Executive Chef David Lani, a Culinary Institute of America alum who helped launch 7th Avenue Social. The atmosphere is casual, the food is fun and fanciful. Cucumber mojitos started the meal off on a cool and refreshing note. Three Maryland style mini crab cakes with remoulade, grilled Mexican street corn and cotija cheese made a great appetizer. The bao bun tacos, tucked into Chinese-style buns rather than taco shells, come in three versions and I liked all three: the crispy pork belly with charred jalapenos, mango and bourbon glaze; blackened shrimp with kim chee slaw; and wild mushrooms with hoisin, onion and cucumber. Red grouper sliders and a pair of mini hot butter poached lobster rolls with garlic beurre blanc were great entrees. Also well done were sides of hand-cut fries and roasted cauliflower with garlic and Parmesan. The stout beer milk chocolate pudding is a great ending for beer lovers. Full bar.Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2017 Fernandez the BullMidtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 653-9097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari and then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Rodizio Grill, Coconut Point, 8017 Plaza Del Lago Drive, Estero; 498-0018 The latest dining addition at Coconut Point re-creates the Brazilian churrascaria tradition of all-you-can-eat grilled meats carved tableside by gauchos wielding three-foot skewers and scary looking knives. Its entirely possible to eat a weeks worth of protein at one sitting. Thats not advisable for a number of reasons, one of which is that you should dedicate a portion of your appetite to the remarkably expansive salad bar and Brazilian side dishes. We sampled four cuts of beef, three pork presentations, ham and three chicken items including some exquisitely tender hearts. The tritip and a garlicky beef called bife com alho were favorites in the beef department. Bacon-wrapped chicken and pork chunks were table pleasers, too, as were sweet pork linguia sausages and pork loin dusted with Parmesan. Aside from the occasional streak of gristle, the only real disappointment was the leg of lamb, which was overcooked and devoid of even the slightest hint of pink. Full bar.

The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. A trio of baby lamb chops was moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard.

CUISINEKid-friendly recipes from locals in the know BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comBusy parents are always looking for quick, healthy and kid-friendly meals. To that end, we solicited recipes from Naples nutritionist Betsy Opyt and Bonita Springs chef Kristina San Filippo. Being a busy mom running a couple of businesses, I have to prep and plan, Ms. Opyt said. Thats the most important thing. I do everything in advance, like batch cooking, and I think it saves me time. Some of the things she keeps on hand to ensure she doesnt have to scramble for healthy meals and snacks are frozen vegetables, cooked chicken breasts, precooked homemade chicken nuggets and frozen shrimp. If you have picky eaters, take heart, she said: Kids taste buds change every three months, and there are ways of encouraging them to try new things as well. As a parent, you have to be very flexible and understand that at times they are going to be picky. You have to explore ways of adjusting taste and texture for children. And dont force them, she added. Be very open and be a role model hopefully, they will follow their parents footsteps. Also, allowing kids to take over cooking tasks is a great way to encourage them to take ownership of their own diet. Moms dont always bring kids into the kitchen and teach them those skills, Ms. Opyt said. They love meal prep and to own a part of it. Ms. San Filippo, the owner of Purple Spoon, has a repertoire of plant-based and locally sourced dishes that lend themselves to some yummy iterations that kids will love just with some unfamiliar tweaks. For example, her chocolate cashew butter uses co conut milk instead of cow milk. Unfortunately, if you mix dairy with dark chocolate, you are making powerful compounds unavailable to your body, she said. If you mix dark chocolate with coconut milk which is full of wonderfully healthy fats it allows all of the valuable antioxidants and flavanols of the dark chocolate to be completely available to your digestive system.. And soaking dried chickpeas and using them instead of the canned variety for yummus prevents the digestive upset that often follows the consumption of legumes, she said. The soaking process breaks down the phytic acid and other complex compounds of the legumes that can otherwise cause the uncomfortable aftereffects that most Americans associate with eating beans, she explained.

Change the soaking water two or three times during the soaking period, rinsing well each time. Once the soaking period is completed, move the chickpeas to a large cooking pot and add enough fresh water to cover the chickpeas by 2 inches. Cover the pot and bring water to a simmer; reduce the heat to a low setting and cook chickpeas undisturbed for 15 minutes. Stir 1 tbs. of kosher salt into the cooking water, recover the pot and continue to simmer until chickpeas are very tender, about 20-30 minutes longer. Once the chickpeas are tender, drain them through a mesh strainer into a large heatproof bowl, reserving the cooking liquid separately. Shiitake mixture 2 tbs. saf ower oil 2 cups shiitake mushrooms, small dice 4 garlic cloves, small chop 2 lemons, zest and juice cup white wine cup garlic chives, nely chopped Heat the saf ower oil in a large skillet, add the mushrooms and stir occasionally until softened. Add the garlic and stir continuously for about 30 seconds to prevent the garlic from burning. Once garlic begins to brown slightly, add the lemon juice, white wine and garlic chives. Simmer until wine cooks down and is absorbed into the mushrooms. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside to cool. Reserve cup of mushroom mixture for garnish. Mix the hummus 4 cups chickpeas 1 lemon, juice and zest cup extra virgin olive oil 2 cups of the reserved cooking liquid from chickpeas (plus more as needed) Place chickpeas, lemon juice and zest, olive oil and 2 cups of cooking liquid into a high-powered blender and puree until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add more of the reserved cooking liquid. Add the mushroom mixture and puree once again. Stir in the garnish portion of shiitake and season the hummus to taste with sea salt and fresh pepper.
